County officials are encouraging residents to approve an operational millage on the November 8 ballot that will raise funds to support improving services for veterans.
The ballot language for the proposal was approved by the Livingston County Board of Commissioners in June. According to a press release, if passed, the millage would assess 0.1127 mils for six years and generate slightly over $1 million per year, if levied, to provide support for veterans and their dependents in our community. The millage would cost the owner of a home with a market value of $170,000 about $10 a year.
To learn more about the proposal, Veteran Services is inviting residents to visit their website, where they have created a “2022 Millage Proposal” section. The site can be accessed by visiting https://www.livgov.com/veterans/ and clicking on “Veterans Services Millage Proposal” banner.
“The site contains third party analysis of the proposal, the official ballot language, and a list of FAQs, which will help answer most questions about the proposal, states the release. “If you have a question that has not been addressed, the department welcomes the public to email them at email@example.com. Questions and answers will be added to the FAQ list periodically.”
