Boyne City Primary
A total of seven candidates are vying for the three committee seats up for election in Boyne City. The August 3 primary election will reduce the field to six – the maximum number allowed to compete for slots on the ballot in the November general election.

Mileage request for public schools in Eastern Jordan
A proposed recreation tax to help fund the maintenance and operations of the East Jordan Public Pool will be on the August 3 ballot for voters in the East Jordan Public School District.
The district will ask voters to approve a new property tax of $ 0.6 million for a 10-year period to help cover expenses associated with the 34-year pool.
The school district has been responsible for the maintenance and operation of the pool since it was built for the community in 1987. If the mileage is approved, the resulting funds will allow the district to take care of the pool without having to. use dollars that might otherwise be targeted for educational needs.
The proposal reads as follows:
“Will the limit on the amount of tax that can be assessed on all property at public schools in East Jordan, Charlevoix and Antrim counties, Michigan be increased by and will the school board be- he authorized to withdraw up to a maximum of 0.6 million ($ 0.60 on each $ 1,000 of taxable assessment) for a period of 10 years, 2022 to 2031, inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for the operation of a public recreation system, including a swimming pool; the estimated revenue the school district will receive for this recreation program if the mileage is approved and collected in 2022 is approximately $ 235,788? “
Due to a $ 0.6 million reduction in the school district’s debt repayment mileage, the proposed $ 0.6 million recreational request, if approved, would not increase the total tax rate levied by the school district. district.
SGE proposals in the Charlevoix region
In the next primary elections on August 3, the city of Charlevoix and the surrounding townships are asking voters to approve funding to support a new, more efficient ambulance service structure.
The city and townships of Charlevoix, Norwood, Marion and Hayes are asking voters for approval for a new property tax levy at the rate of 1.5 thousandths (which would bring in about $ 1.1 million in one year). The voting language used in most communities is as follows:
“The limitation of the amount of taxes that may be imposed on taxable property within the territorial limits of the Régie des services medicinaux d’existence du lac Charlevoix, which is made up of the township of Hayes, the township of Charlevoix, the township of Marion and the city of Charlevoix, County of Charlevoix, Michigan, be increased to one dollar and fifty cents ($ 1.50) per thousand dollars ($ 1,000) (1.5 thousandth) of assessed value on all taxable property in the territorial limits of the Authority for five (5) years, from 2021 to 2025, inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for the operation, equipment and maintenance of ambulance services within the territorial limits of the Administration, and will the Lake Charlevoix Emergency Medical Services Administration be authorized to take such mileage for these purposes?
If approved and sampled in its entirety, it is estimated that the 1.5 factories would bring in about $ 1,148,516.01 to the Authority when they are first sampled in 2021.
This proposal will allow the Authority to take up to 1.5 vintages in order to provide funds for the operation, equipment and maintenance of ambulance services within the territorial limits of the Authority over the years. years 2021-2025 inclusive. “
Norwood Township officials have decided to pursue different participation conditions with the ambulance authority than in neighboring communities, so different ballot wording will be used there. However, the demand for mileage from voters will be the same as elsewhere.
