Waterloo Residents,

November is approaching and with it an opportunity to act on a ballot proposal that would, if approved, levy a Police Protection millage in Waterloo of 1.5 Mils. This millage will become active in 2015 retiring in 2024. Monies generated from this millage are to be applied solely in support of police services within Waterloo Township. Waterloo currently levies operating and public safety millages that will expire 12/31/14. The proposed millage will replace those that expire and eliminate the need to transfer funds from the township’s general account to cover police expenses. In other words police services will be independently funded helping to ensure the township can continue to offer this service. 

As a taxpayer in the township, I’m sure you are wondering what impact the proposed millage will have upon your individual tax bill. Ultimately this is dependent upon the taxable value of your home. For example, homes with a taxable value of:

$60,000 will pay $90.00/year for police service.

$80,000 will pay $120/year for police service.

$100,000 will pay $150/year for police service.

$120,000 will pay $180/year for police service.

If you have further questions about this proposal, please contact me or another member of the board at your convenience. Please check our website waterlootwpmi.com often to read updates.  You can also call the township office at 517-596-8200 if you have further questions.

Thank you

Doug Lance

Waterloo Township Supervisor


Waterloo Township Reviewing Police Department Millage Rates

        On March 25,2013 Waterloo Township held a special board meeting to discuss police and operational millage's. The Township currently levies .4261 mills for police services, and a combined .8464 mills to cover operational costs. The full police millage and .1020 of the operating millage expire in December 2014,necessitating action in a future election.

        Following an extensive review of options it was determined the best course of action would be to ask the Waterloo electorate to approve 1.5 mills for the express purpose of covering police services. An operational millage was not deemed necessary due to the board’s demonstrated ability to operate effectively utilizing onlythose funds obtained through revenue sharing with the State of Michigan.

        This proposal would have a minimal impact upon the average taxpayer* in Waterloo Township. The current total millage levied is 1.275.At 1.5 mills the proposed police millage would, if approved, result in an average annual increase to the taxpayer of approximately $17.00, slightly less than $1.50 per month. This level of funding would allow the Township to employ two full time officers along with an administrative assistant to support their day-to-day activities.

            Ultimately this proposal will provide increased transparency by ensuring funds are utilized for their stated purpose, while slightly simplifying tax bills.Taxation is a contentious enough topic without adding unneeded and unnecessary redundancies to the process.

*These figures are based on Waterloo Township’s average taxable value being $75,000.  Individual property taxable value may be higher or lower and can be found on your tax bills, yearly assessment, or by contacting the township.
