August 2nd 2022 Election The August primary election has a proposal from the North Dickinson County School on the ballot. The school is asking voters to approve a 2 mil tax for a sinking fund. This fund has been in place and renewals have been approved continuously for around 20 years. The fund was last renewed by the voters in 2012 for a period of 10 years and that approved sinking fund is expiring. The proposal on the ballot this August is a new tax because the language in the proposal this August will allow the school district to use sinking funds in part for safety/security improvements at the school. Safety and security was not permitted use of the sinking fund when it was last approved in 2012. A few years ago the law changed, allowing sinking funds to be used for technology and security, however, the District cannot use it for that unless the voters approve the new millage that contains the new language. Because the school is asking for the new use of the funds, it is a new millage not a renewal. If approved the maximum amount the school board will be permitted to levy will be the same as the previous years - 2 mills. There is no change in the millage between the old sinking fund and the newly requested fund. The school board has not levied the full voter approved two mils for the past several years. They have levied only the amount necessary to sustain the sinking fund based on planned future projects. A Sinking Fund is a way for residents to invest directly in their school system by keeping their tax dollars local. In Michigan, a Sinking Fund is a millage levied to support your local school safety improvements, technology improvements, and the repair and construction of school buildings. The sinking fund cannot be used to pay wages, fringe benefits, regular routine maintenance, furniture, books, etc…
