What is the “Police and Fire Pension” tax line item?
This is not a new tax. The Police and Fire pension millage is authorized by Michigan Act 345 of 1937 and was voted in by City residents years ago. This millage rate is tied to the police and fire retiree pension and healthcare liability. As the annual liability fluctuates, the millage rate will fluctuate. According to Act 345 language, the millage can increase or decrease without a public vote. The annual increase/decrease is approved by Council before the tax year.
