Township proposals

Courtland, Nelson and Spencer Townships will be voting on whether to renew their millages for fire protection. These millages have been previously authorized, and voters would vote “yes” if they want to renew, and “no” if they do not.

Courtland Township is asking to renew their millage of .8825 mill ($0.8825 per $1,000 of taxable value) for 2012-2017. The purpose of this special millage is to provide fire protection for the Township, including the operation of the Township Fire Department, the purchase and maintenance of fire and rescue motor vehicles, apparatus and equipment, the maintenance of the Township fire stations, and the payment of any debt on fire stations, and the funds generated will be disbursed to the Township for those purposes. A levy of .8825 mill would provide revenue of approximately $230,513.96 in the first calendar year of the renewal.

Nelson Township is asking to renew their millage of .5000 mill ($0.5000 per $1,000 of taxable value) for 2012-2017. The purpose of this levy is to provide funds for fire protection services in the Township including the cost of contracting for fire protection services and for the acquisition of fire and rescue motor vehicles, apparatus, equipment, and buildings. It is estimated that a levy of 0.5000 mill would provide revenue of$60,147 in the first calendar year.

Spencer Township is asking to renew their millage of 1.00 mill ($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) for 2012-2016. The purpose of this levy is to provide fire protection within the Township, including the operation, maintenance and equipping of the Township Fire Department, and the acquisition and maintenance of fire and rescue vehicles, apparatus, equipment, buildings and other improvements for fire protection purposes. It is estimated that a levy of 1.00 mills would provide revenue of $117,670 in the first calendar year.
