Remember: there are two proposals on the November 5, 2019 City of Flint ballot for Flint Public Library. You will need to vote on both of them.
Library Millage Renewal
Shall the Flint Public Library, County of Genesee, be authorized to levy an amount not to exceed 2.0 mills ($2.00 on each $1,000 of taxable value), which is a renewal of the millage rate that expires in 2021, against all taxable property within the Flint Public Library district for a period of ten (10) years, 2022 to 2031, inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for all district library purposes authorized by law? The estimate of the revenue the Flint Public Library will collect in the first year of levy (2022) if the millage is approved and levied by the Library is approximately $1,568,000.
Shall the Flint Public Library, formed by the City of Flint and the Flint Community Schools, County of Genesee, State of Michigan, borrow the sum of not to exceed Twelve Million Six Hundred Thousand Dollars ($12,600,000) and issue its general obligation unlimited tax bonds therefor, for the purpose of paying all or a portion of the costs of expanding, renovating, constructing, equipping and furnishing the existing Library facility and improving the site thereof, located at 1026 E. Kearsley Street, Flint, Michigan, including costs related thereto.
The following is for informational purposes only:
The maximum number of years the bonds may be outstanding, exclusive of refunding, is twelve (12) years; the estimated millage to be levied to pay the proposed bonds in the first year is 1.82 mills (which is equal to $1.82 per $1,000 of taxable value); and the estimated simple average annual millage required to retire the bonds over 12 years is 1.81 mills ($1.81 per $1,000 of taxable value).
