Kalamazoo County, MI

Type: Property Tax

Outcome: Loss

The Kalamazoo County Transportation Authority is seeking a millage to pay for transit services for the next four years. If voters approve the tax, the authority will levy 0.63 mills in 2008, gradually increasing the tax rate each year up to 0.86 mills by 2011. The first year of the new tax rate is expected to generate $5 million. The transportation millage would replace two expiring taxes: 1.38 mill for Kalamazoo city taxpayers and 0.38 mill for the rest of Kalamazoo County.
