And the following proposals:
 
Renewal of Oakland County Art Institute Authority Millage (All precincts):

 
In 2012 the electors of Oakland County approved a 10-year millage to provide County residents with services from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) through the Oakland County Art Institute Authority.
 
As a result of the millage, the DIA provides Oakland County residents with free K-12 school field trips including free transportation, free senior group programming with free transportation, and unlimited free general admission. To ensure transparency, the DIA submits to an annual independent audit and posts financial reports online.
 
To continue to provide revenue to the DIA, which will allow these DIA services for the residents of the County to continue, the Art Institute Authority is permitted by law to seek a renewal of the millage at a rate of no more than the current 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 taxable value) on all real and personal property in the County. Revenue from this millage will be disbursed to the Art Institute Authority and then transferred to the DIA as permitted by and for the purposes set forth in Public Act 296 of 2010. It is estimated that if approved and levied, this millage renewal would generate approximately $13,600,000 in 2022.
 
Do you approve the renewal of the 0.2 mill on all taxable property located within the County for a period of 10 years from 2022 through 2031?
 
NORTHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS (Precincts 16, 17, 24, and 25):

           
NORTHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS SINKING FUND MILLAGE PROPOSAL .9519 MILL FOR 5 YEARS.
 
Full text of the ballot propositions may be obtained at the administrative offices of Northville Public Schools, 405 West Main Street, Northville, Michigan, 48167-1582, telephone: (248) 344-3500.
 
Absentee ballots are available for all elections; registered voters may contact the City of Novi Clerk to obtain an application for an absent voter ballot.
 
To comply with the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), voting instructions will be available in audio format and in Braille. Arrangements for obtaining the instructions in these alternative formats can be made by contacting the township clerk in advance of the election. All polling locations are accessible for voters with disabilities.

Renewal of Oakland County Art Institute Authority Millage (All precincts):
 
In 2012 the electors of Oakland County approved a 10-year millage to provide County residents with services from the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) through the Oakland County Art Institute Authority.
 
As a result of the millage, the DIA provides Oakland County residents with free K-12 school field trips including free transportation, free senior group programming with free transportation, and unlimited free general admission. To ensure transparency, the DIA submits to an annual independent audit and posts financial reports online.
 
To continue to provide revenue to the DIA, which will allow these DIA services for the residents of the County to continue, the Art Institute Authority is permitted by law to seek a renewal of the millage at a rate of no more than the current 0.2 mill (20 cents per $1,000 taxable value) on all real and personal property in the County. Revenue from this millage will be disbursed to the Art Institute Authority and then transferred to the DIA as permitted by and for the purposes set forth in Public Act 296 of 2010. It is estimated that if approved and levied, this millage renewal would generate approximately $13,600,000 in 2022.
 
Do you approve the renewal of the 0.2 mill on all taxable property located within the County for a period of 10 years from 2022 through 2031?
 
Northville Public Schools (Precincts 16, 17, 24, and 25):
           
    Northville Public Schools Sinking Fund Millage Proposal .9519 mill for 5  years.
 
Full text of the ballot propositions may be obtained at the administrative offices of Northville Public Schools, 405 West Main Street, Northville, Michigan, 48167-1582, telephone: (248) 344-3500.
