August 6, 2019 Election
Election Day in the Charter Township of Bloomfield, Oakland County, Michigan
The polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 6, 2019.
On Election Day, Township voters will be asked to vote on a Special Assessment District to fund Police and Fire services. Bloomfield Township is facing a major budget shortfall over funding of the Other Post Employment Benefits (OPEB), specifically health care costs for retirees, and the Defined Benefit Pension Plan. At the April 8, 2019 meeting, the Board of Trustees passed a resolution approving the following ballot language:
SPECIAL ASSESSMENT FOR POLICE/FIRE DEPARTMENTS
Should the Charter Township of Bloomfield raise money to equip, maintain, and operate the Township Police/Fire Departments by annual special assessment levies of up to 2.30 mills ($2.30 per $1 ,000.00 of taxable value) on all real property in the Township that is not exempt from property taxes, for a period of 15 years, with the levies to be from 2019 to 2033 to provide funding for the 2019/2020 to the 2033/2034 fiscal years. If approved and fully levied in December 2019, the revenue from this special assessment collected in the first year would be $9,041,317.00. In the event this ballot proposal is approved by the voters, the existing voted general millage due to expire in 2019 will not be renewed by the Township.
