Understanding The Headlee Restoration Millage

On October 19, George Heitsch, the superintendent of Farmington Public Schools, will continue his series of discussions in hopes of convincing voters to restore a millage reduction that would bring back money to the district.

According to Heitsch, the millage would apply only to non-homestead property such as commercial business, rental properties, vacant land and second-home properties and mirrors a request that was approved by voters a couple of years ago. Without the override, the millage rollback could cost the district close to $170,000. This issue will be on November's ballot.

The Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting Heitsch for a Q&A at 7:30 a.m. next Thursday in the Farmington High School Media Center. To find out more about this event or to register, visit the Chamber's website.
