  • Proposal 1 is an end-around by-pass of the school tax limitations approved by the voters and defined in Proposal A of 1994
  • Despite the use of the name Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD), none of the proposed tax increase will go to increase services for Special Needs Students
  • The May 3, 2016 Ballot Proposal 1 in Washtenaw County would increase taxes by 1.5 mils and an estimated 22 million dollars on the citizens of Washtenaw County
  • Proposal 1 would increase property taxes on a $200,000 home by $150 per year on top of the already large amount of taxes being paid in Washtenaw communities
  • The tax burden on Washtenaw County citizens is huge and growing (see page 2 published handout from Washtenaw County Commission working session April 7,2016 which may be found here
  • Factoring in the proposed investments for fiscal year 2017, the governor has invested an additional $1.4 billion in the state’s K-12 education system since taking office in 2011.  *
