OAKLAND COUNTY ZOOLOGICAL AUTHORITY RENEWAL MILLAGE The Oakland County Zoological Authority was established pursuant to Public Act 49 of 2008 and formed to allow for continuing zoological services for the students, residents and visitors of Oakland County. The law allows the Authority to seek authorization from the electors to levy a tax on real and personal property to provide revenue to an accredited zoological institution for this purpose. Accordingly, as a renewal of the previously approved millage authorization which expires with the 2017 tax levy, to continue providing zoological services to benefit the residents of the County, shall the 0.1 mill (10 cents per $1,000 of taxable value) on all of the taxable property located within the County continue to be imposed for a period of ten (10) years, being years 2018 through 2027? It is estimated that if approved and levied, this millage would generate approximately $5,609,562 in 2018.
CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF ORION FIRE MILLAGE Shall the Charter Township of Orion be authorized to levy up to 1.984 mills for a period of 4 years beginning December 2016 and expiring December 2019 to provide for the following purposes: fire protection services for the operation and maintenance of the Orion Township Fire Department, including the purchase of equipment and buildings to serve the Charter Township of Orion and the Village of Lake Orion, and the hiring of personnel and payment of wages and benefits. Approval of this proposal would authorize the levy of approximately $1.984 per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the Township and the Village of Lake Orion, a portion of which will be disbursed to the Village of Lake Orion Downtown Development Authority. It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $2,810,671.15 in the first year if approved and levied.

It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $4,506,993.87 in the first year if approved and levied. A property with a taxable value of $50,000 would be taxed $149.43 for the millage.
