OAKLAND COUNTY ART INSTITUTE AUTHORITY MILLAGE

The Oakland County Art Institute Authority established pursuant to Public Act 296 of 2010 to allow for continuing support of art institute services for the students, residents and visitors of Oakland County. The law allows the Authority to seek authorization from the electors to levy a tax of not more than 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 of taxable value) on real and personal property to provide revenue to an art institute services provider for this purpose. Accordingly, to continue providing art institute services to benefit the residents of Oakland County, shall a 0.2 mill on all of the taxable property located within the County be imposed for a period of ten (10) years, being years 2012 through 2021? It is estimated that if approved and levied, this new millage would generate approximately $9,847,191 in 2012.

PROPOSED FIRE MILLAGE RENEWAL

Shall the Charter Township of Orion be authorized to continue the previously authorized levy of .9916 mills for a period of 4 years beginning December 2012 and expiring December 2015 to provide fire protection services for the operation and maintenance of the Orion Township Fire Department, including the purchase of equipment and buildings to serve the Charter Township of Orion and the Village of Lake Orion? Approval of this proposal would authorize the levy of approximately $.9916 per $1,000 of taxable value on all property in the Township and the Village of Lake Orion. It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $1,297,750 in the first year if approved and levied.

It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $2,425,440 in the first year if approved and levied. A property with taxable value of $50,000 would be taxed $99.16 for the millage.

Shall the Charter Township of Orion be authorized to levy an additional 1.0168 mills for a period of 4 years beginning December 2012 and expiring December 2015 to provide police protection services; including equipment, operating costs, officer quarters and personnel costs in the Township?
