Macomb Community College
Operating Millage Proposal
On May 8, Macomb County voters will consider a 20-year operating millage renewal and restoration for Macomb Community College. The current operating millage, which accounts for 26 percent of the college’s revenue (or $36,320,000) will expire in 2020. This millage is vital to the operations of the College. Without it, the College would be forced to greatly reduce programs and services for students and the community, and/or substantially increase tuition.
This proposal combines, restores and continues prior operational and technology millages at the same level as initially approved by voters in 2000. For a home with a taxable value of $50,000 (saleable value of $100,000), this will result in an increase of less than $3 per year.
