Q.  Why do we need a millage election?

 

Answer:

The Non-Homestead Millage is required by Proposal A, the state's school funding structure, in order for Grand Ledge Public Schools to receive its full per pupil foundation allowance from the state.  However, the law he law requires that the 18 mills on Non-Homestead property cannot be levied unless it comes before voters in an election.  

Grand Ledge Public Schools' residents last approved the operating millage in 1995.  The 2014 election is requesting a 10-year renewal period.
