November 2, 2021 Public Safety Millage Proposal

Pittsfield Township residents will have the opportunity to vote at a November 2, 2021 Special Election on the following Public Safety Millage Proposal:

As a replacement of the existing 1.95 mills previously authorized for public safety purposes expiring in 2021, shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property within the Charter Township of Pittsfield, County of Washtenaw, Michigan be increased in an amount not to exceed 2.95 mills ($2.95 on each $1,000.00 of taxable value), for a period of 5 years, beginning in the year 2021 and ending in the year 2025, inclusive, as new additional millage for the purpose of providing funds to the Department of Public Safety for operating expenses; for sworn police officers, firefighters and support personnel; for replacement and additional fire apparatus and equipment acquisition; for improvements, renovations, repair and maintenance of existing facilities; and for related program support for the Department of Public Safety? It is estimated that 2.95 mills would raise approximately $6,528,207 when first levied in 2021.

The November 2, 2021 Special Election results will be available on Washtenaw County's Elections page.
