 *2.5 mills would equate to a $157 or $13 per month increase in their current total property tax bill. (Sterling Heights millage increase to go on ballot to be discussed at Tues., May 21 Council meeting)   

  • Vanderpool wants a Charter Amendment to make this millage increase a dedicated millage that will go on forever
  • The article  neglected to report that the taxpayers are already paying 2.06 mills for Police and Fire Pensions
  • The millage may be one ballot question and voters will vote it up or down

 Please tune in on Tues, May 21 Council meeting and see what is going on for yourself.  Better yet please attend the meeting and speak up.  You can also go to the Sterling Heights website and see the meeting.  Reruns of the meeting will be shown on Sterling Heights cable.

Are you ready to have this milage to become a charter mandate?
