Supervisor Lovelock read the following statement for the record regarding the Truth in Taxation Hearing and Millage Reduction Fraction from assistant assessor Peggy Bruci: "The public is hereby notified that a Truth in Taxation Hearing is not needed at this time. The Headlee Millage Reduction Fraction is 1.0000. The increase in taxes proposed for 2009 does not exceed the C.P.I. (consumer price index) and therefore the total maximum millage can remain the same for 2009. The total Township Allocated Operating Mill is .8061. The Fire Voted Operating Millage from 1994 is 1.3858, and Fire Equipment is .4617. The Fire Operating Millage voted in 2008 is .5000. Base tax rate times 1.0000 equals the same start number. These numbers can be found on the Michigan Department of Treasury form L-4029 which will be on file in

the County Clerk’s Office, the County Equalization Department and the Township’s Clerk’s Department."
