Midland County Road Millage 2016 Renewal

Road Millage Renewal • November 2016 General Election • Consider ballot issue to renew existing county wide 1 mill that expires in 2016

Funding History and Needs

Road Millage Renewal • Citizens of Midland have supported a 1 mill county wide road millage since about 1980. • 4 year periods. • In 2014 voters also supported an additional 1 mill toward roads. • That money is available for use in Feb. 2016.

Road Millage Renewal • With that additional mill we told the voter of Midland that we would use it toward higher level repairs and we are doing that. • We also told voters in 2014 that the buying capacity of one mil doesn’t go as far as it did in 1980. • Also we have a 25% larger network since 1980. • We accumulated a backlog of projects.

Road Millage Renewal • Construction costs have outpaced available revenue and the road condition is worsening.
