Voting - Registered? Did you need to request an absentee ballot?

Walled Lake Schools is asking the community to RENEW the non-homestead and hold-harmless operating millage on the Nov. 4 ballot.  THIS IS A RENEWAL and is NOT AN INCREASE in taxes.

The 18 mill non-homestead (generally applies to businesses or those with second homes) millage represents $23 million of the District’s operating budget while the 3.9 mill hold harmless renewal millage represents $7 million of the District’s budget.

This is a total of $30 million 20 percent of the District’s one year only total budget. (Current yearly budget is $154 million).  This loss of revenue would be devastating for our district.

If you have not done so, please register to vote at the link below BY OCTOBER 6th!
