Special election May 2 to ask Mel-NAP voters for millage renewal

MELVINDALE – A special election is set for May 2, to renew the Melvindale-Northern Allen Park Public Schools operating millage for general operating purposes.

Mel-NAP school officials said if the renewal passes, it would allow the school district to levy 18 mills through 2028 on non-homestead property.  A “yes” vote would mean the district would continue to levy the mileage on commercial, industrial and residential rental properties. Owner-occupied houses are exempt from the levy.

The current millage authorization expires in 2018. If the millage is renewed, it will be levied for 10 years for the general operating purposes of Mel-NAP schools.

If approved, the millage would generate $4,283,200 for the school district in 2019.

The polls open at 7 a.m. May 2, and close at 8 p.m. A consolidated precinct will be at Allen Park Community Center, 15800 White St.
