Bloomfield Township Public Library Seeks Millage Renewal In February

On the February 27, 2024 presidential primary ballot, Bloomfield Township residents will be presented with the opportunity to renew a millage for Bloomfield Township Public Library. The Library Board of Trustees is asking voters to consider renewing the existing current millage rate in order to maintain the existing level of funding for the Library.
 
The Library is currently supported by three separate millage rates, two of which are levied in perpetuity and one of which expires at the end of 2023. This proposal asks Bloomfield Township voters to consider renewing the 2023 expiring millage at the current rate of .5047 for 10 years. This funding accounts for approximately 27% of the Library’s current total revenues. The renewal would not increase current tax payments and would continue to cost the average taxpayer approximately $151 per year on a home with a taxable value of $300,000. 
 
“The Library is a vibrant pillar of the community, serving the 44,235 residents of Bloomfield Township with resources, technology, and support for all ages,” said Library Director Tera Moon. “If the millage renewal is approved, the Library will work to achieve the goals of the 2023-2025 strategic plan and continue its award-winning operations of the last several years. If the millage renewal is not approved, serious cuts to hours, services, staffing, and programming will have to be made to account for the loss of 27% of the Library’s total revenues,” she added.
 
The Library will host four public informational sessions about the millage renewal proposal:
 
            Wednesday, January 17 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
            Thursday, February 15 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
 
All are welcome, no registration is required to attend the informational sessions.
