Washtenaw Board of Commissioners Considers November Millage for Seniors, Public Health


As Washtenaw County voters decide the fate of two millage requests during the Aug. 4 primary election, the county board of commission is considering another tax proposal for the Nov. 3 general election.

The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners will meet Aug. 5 to consider a resolution adding a "Public Health and Seniors" millage to the Nov. 3 ballot.

According to WEMU, the plan is a six-year, .5-mill levy.  Half of the revenue would fund public health operations, including clinical services, while the other half would be used for services helping for seniors.

The owner of a $300,000 home would pay about $75 annually.

According to a press release from the County Board of Commissioners, the board will also consider resolutions to accelerate the county's "carbon neutrality goal" from 2035 to 2030 and to allocate $2.5 million towards and LED lighting project that will cut the county's carbon output by 30 percent.

The meeting is at  6:30 p.m.
