APPROVAL OR DISAPPROVAL OF AMENDATORY ACT TO REDUCE STATE USE TAX AND REPLACE WITH A LOCAL COMMUNITY STABILIZATION SHARE TO MODERNIZE THE TAX SYSTEM TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES GROW AND CREATE JOBS

The amendatory act adopted by the Legislature would:

1. Reduce the state use tax and replace with a local community stabilization share of the tax for the purpose of modernizing the tax system to help small businesses grow and create jobs in Michigan.

2. Require Local Community Stabilization Authority to provide revenue to local governments dedicated for local purposes, including police safety, fire protection, and ambulance emergency services.

3. Increase portion of state use tax dedicated for aid to local school districts.

4. Prohibit Authority from increasing taxes.

5. Prohibit total use tax rate from exceeding existing constitutional 6% limitation.

Should this law be approved?

PROPOSED ADDITONAL FIRE OPERATION MILLAGE

Shall the Charter Township of Orion be authorized to levy an additional one (1) mill for a period of 2 years beginning December 2014 and expiring December 2015, inclusive, to provide fire protection services to serve the Charter Township of Orion and the Village of Lake Orion, but limited to the operation and maintenance of the Orion Township Fire Department; including, the hiring of personnel and payment of wages and benefits. Approval of this proposal would authorize the levy of approximately $1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township and the Village of Lake Orion, a portion of which will be disbursed to the Village of Lake Orion Downtown Development Authority. It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $1,312,025.39 in the first year if approved and levied. A property with a taxable value of $50,000 would be taxed $50.00 for this millage per year.

PROPOSED ADDITIONAL FIRE CAPITAL AND EQUIPMENT MILLAGE

Shall the Charter Township of Orion be authorized to levy an additional one (1) mill for a period of 5 years beginning December 2014 and expiring December 2018, inclusive, to provide fire protection services to serve the Charter Township of Orion and the Village of Lake Orion, but limited to the capital and equipment expenditures of the Orion Township Fire Department; including the construction of new fire stations and purchase of vehicles. Approval of this proposal would authorize the levy of approximately $1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township and the Village of Lake Orion, a portion of which will

be disbursed to the Village of Lake Orion Downtown Development Authority. It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $1,312,025.39 in the first year if approved and levied. A property with a taxable value of $50,000 would be taxed $50.00 for this millage per year.

For Orion Township Voters in the Rochester Community School District:

OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL

This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its full foundation allowance per pupil under Proposal A. The remaining 1.9307 mills are only available to be levied to restore millage lost as a result of a "Headlee" rollback and will only be levied to the extent necessary to restore that rollback.

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Rochester Community School District, Oakland and Macomb Counties, Michigan, be renewed by 19.9307 mills ($19.9307 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 10 years, 2015 to 2024, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and 18 mills are levied in 2015 is approximately $17,008,062 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2014 tax levy)?
