Headlee Restoration - May 4, 2021
The West Bloomfield School District Board of Education unanimously approved a 2.0 mill non-homestead millage restoration proposal during their Jan. 25 regular meeting. This proposal will appear on the May 4, 2021 ballot.
The ballot proposal calls for a 2.0 mill increase in the non-homestead millage rate. This will raise the current non-homestead tax rate from its current rolled back rate of 16.9544 to 18.9544 mills. While the school district can only levy 18 mills on non-homestead property, the millage above 18 mills will protect the school district from future rollbacks.
This proposal seeks restoration of the non-homestead tax rate that was approved by voters in 2014.
