SHIAWASSEE COUNTY – The Shiawassee County Senior Citizen Services Millage will be up for renewal in the Tuesday, Aug. 8 election. Registered voters will be able to decide whether to renew 0.5 mills for the next four years, 2018 through 2021 inclusive.

The millage amounts to 50 cents per $1,000 of taxable value on property. For example, a house with an assessed value of $100,000, $50 per year would go toward the senior services millage if the proposal is renewed.

According to the ballot language, “If approved and levied in full, this millage will raise an estimated $864,410 for the senior citizen services in the first calendar year of the levy based on taxable value. As required by law, a portion of the millage may also be disbursed to the Downtown Development Authorities of the Cities of Corunna, Durand, Laingsburg, and Owosso, and the villages of Byron, Lennon, Morrice, New Lothrop and Vernon, the Brownfield Authorities of Owosso Township and the City of Owosso.”

According to the Michigan Secretary of State website, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day.
