This is not a new tax. This is not a tax increase. This is a renewal of the Hold Harmless Millage which represents almost $40 million in funding for your school district. Combined the Hold Harmless Millage generates $39.3 million or 22% of the District’s total $178.7 million budget. Without the renewal of the millage on November 4, 2014 the Dearborn Public Schools would face draconian reductions in services to students.
