LYNN TOWNSHIP — Only a handful of local ballot issues are due to appear on St. Clair County’s general elections ballots but among them will be Lynn Township’s request to renew their standing roads millage.
Voters will be asked to extend the current one mill levy for a term of four years, from 2020 to 2023. That amounts to $1 for every $1,000 of taxable value.
The ballot language states the funds will be used for “providing funds for the construction, improvement and maintenance of public roads.”
If renewed, the millage is estimated to total $50,870 in the first year its collected. That’s a positive indication that taxable values have grown since the last time the millage was renewed. When voters approved the last renewal request in 2016, the millage was expected to generate just over $44,000 in the first year.
