Q: Why is the College seeking a millage renewal now?
A: If it is not renewed by voters, the existing operating millage will expire in 2017. Mott Community College wants to be able to continue to provide its current educational, training, economic, community, and workforce development opportunities.
Q: Will this increase my taxes?
A: No it will not. The College is asking voters for a simple renewal of the existing millage rate and is not requesting an increase.
Q: What happens if the millage is not renewed?
A: MCC would not be able to provide its educational, training, economic, community, and workforce development opportunities and services in their current forms. Deep cuts would have to be made without the revenue from the operating millage.
Q: How much is the renewal?
A: Currently, property owners pay .6410 mills, which is .6410 cents for every $1,000 of taxable value. For example, a house worth
$100,000 would have a taxable value of $50,000 and the homeowner would pay $32.05 per year.
