Reading schools operating millage fails at ballot

In World
February 29, 2024

READING — Voters in the Reading Community Schools District narrowly defeated a ballot proposal for an operating millage during Tuesday’s Presidential Primary Election that saw 8,321 of Hillsdale County’s 31,075 registered voters cast a ballot.

Reading’s operating millage gathered 426 votes in favor of passing the millage and 467 votes against it.

The millage hike also failed in August 2023 when the district asked for a 1.5 mills increase the first time.

The increased tax funding would have provided an additional $30,400 in funding for this school year and was requested to restore millage funding lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution’s Headlee Amendment.

Voters in the Camden-Frontier School District overwhelmingly voted in favor of an operating millage renewal with 394 votes in favor and 234 votes against.
