There is a vote coming up in Kalkaska County on Tuesday, August 5th to continue to provide animal control services. This is not a new millage.
The Board of Commissioners had to split up this millage so it was separate from the Recycling Center millage. The Animal Control millage would be for a four-year, 0.133-mill request in support of the animal control services in Kalkaska County. A mill is 1/1000 of a dollar. Property taxes are computed by multiplying the taxable value of the property by the number of mills levied. If your home is assessed at $50,000, the millage will still cost only $6.65 for a year. Northwoods Animal Coalition a non-profit animal welfare group in Kalkaska county asks everyone to vote YES on the millage.
