Wayne, Oakland & Macomb Counties, MI

Type: Property Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Approved, 78%, 74%, 72% (respectively)

Voters in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties voted on a two-year millage renewal to fund local SMART bus service in their communities. The 0.59-mill property tax funds bus service in the 23 suburban communities that have chosen to "opt in" to the system by voting on the tax. SMART gets about half its revenue from property taxes, and has recently trimmed $11 million from its budget — $7 million through cuts and $4 million through a fare increase that took effect Dec. 1.
