Millage Information

Dear Redford Township Community,

On August 2nd, 2022, Redford Township District Library will ask residents to approve 2 mills to fund the library for a period of 20 years. This millage is not a tax increase. This replaces a 1.4 mill operating millage and a .66 mill debt millage that was levied in 2021.

 

Without this millage, the library’s revenue will decrease by over 50% and impact our ability to serve the community. Library services that would be reduced or eliminated include hours of operation, the number of books and other materials purchased, digital subscriptions, computer maintenance, events for all ages, and reference assistance.

If approved, residents will see a reduction in mills levied compared to 2021 and the secured funding will allow the library to move forward with renovations to the library. This includes completing the second floor of the library where 18,000 sq. ft. of space has remained unfinished since the library was built in 2004. Renovations would include creating a new space for kids, additional study rooms for all ages, expanded teen space, and more.

You have the opportunity to help decide the future of the library as we strive to inspire ideas, enrich lives, and create community.
