MCC millage renewal approved

GENESEE COUNTY — Mott Community College received a nod from voters Nov. 5 after the college received renewal of a millage to help with maintenance and improvements at its facilities.

Residents who live in the college’s district, which is composed of all the school districts in Genesee County, votes for the bond renewal. The final vote tally was 24,390-17,551.

Residents will continue to pay 0.87 mills, or 87 cents for every $1,000 of taxable value. MCC reportedly has multiple bonds out at a time and as some get paid off, new ones are taken out.

The money will be used for capital improvements, maintenance, construction and similar uses. Bond millage funds cannot be used for salaries or operating funds.

The last time time Mott’s bond was renewed was in June 2004. — Gary Gould
