August 3rd Millage Election

Color Logo Charter Township of Ypsilanti A Community of Opportunity

Civic Center w Address

On Tuesday, August 3, 2021, a Township election will be held.

If approved, the millage proposals will provide continued revenue for fire, police, trash, recycling, compost, sidewalks, roads, parks, recreation, senior programs, neighborhood watch, ordinance enforcement, and general operations. The existing voter approved millage expires at the end of this year. We are proposing another four-year millage to continue to operate and provide current Township services.

 

Your Ypsilanti Township Board unanimously recommended continuing with the same total millage rate that has been in place since 2013. We all know raising taxes is not the solution and can cause hardship on many homeowners, renters and businesses.

 

2013 voted millage total = 12.2359

2021 proposed millage total = 12.2359

This means no increase in the total millage rate.
