AND FOR THE PURPOSE OF VOTING ON THE FOLLOWING PROPOSALS:

Oakland County Parks & Recreation Millage Renewal

The Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission was created in 1966 pursuant to Public Act 261 of 1965. Since 1967, there has been a separately dedicated parks and recreation millage. The current millage will expire on December 31, 2011.

Accordingly, shall the current millage of .2415 mills, for the purpose of operating, maintaining, improving and acquiring parks and recreation areas and facilities in Oakland County, Michigan, be renewed for a period of ten (10) years from 2012 to 2021? The .2415 mills is equal to $0.2415 per $1,000.00 of taxable value. The millage, if renewed, will generate approximately $10,900,000 in 2012. Revenue from this millage will be disbursed only to the County of Oakland to be used solely for the purpose of funding the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission.

This renewal is a continuation of the previous increase of the constitutional tax limitation on the total amount of general ad valorem taxes which may be imposed each year for all purposes upon taxable property in Oakland County, Michigan as set forth in Section 6, Article 9 of the Michigan Constitution.

Oakland Community College Millage Renewal Proposal

Shall Oakland Community College be authorized to levy taxes in an amount not to exceed $0.7811 per thousand dollars ($1,000) (0.7811 mills) of the taxable value of all taxable property in the College District for a period of ten (10) years, beginning with the July 1, 2012 tax levy, as a renewal of that portion of the millage authorization previously authorized by the electors to provide funds for all Community College purposes authorized by law? It is estimated the 0.7811 mills would raise approximately $38,502,796 when first levied in 2012.
