Board of Commissioners to Vote on Senior Millage on August 5th

We are pleased to report that significant progress is being made to achieve our goal of securing a senior millage for Washtenaw County. A significant development was that Commissioners LeBarre and Scott approached the coalition to join with them to support a combined millage that would include senior services and public health. The Say Yes to Seniors Coalition agreed to this plan, which would levy a half mil tax with a quarter mil (about $4.5 million) each allocated to public health and senior services.

The Ways and Means Committee voted in favor of moving the November ballot proposal for a combined 0.5 mill senior services and public health millage to the full Board of Commissioners for action at their August meeting. The full Board of Commissioners is expected to take action to approve or reject the proposal at their August 5th meeting. The combined 0.5 mil senior services and public health millage would provide 0.25 mil to senior services and 0.25 mil to public health.

Take Action Now-- Washtenaw County residents are encouraged to contact their commissioner to voice their support for a countywide senior millage before August 5th.
