EGR Millage Requests Approved

East Grand Rapids Public Schools voters on Tuesday approved a trio of tax requests by nearly three to one.

Two of the district’s millage renewal requests were for the state-authorized non-homestead tax on industrial and commercial properties, which does not include primary residences. The third, renewal of the sinking fund, was for capital repairs and improvements, and is estimated to collect $344,987 this year.

Approval of all three questions means the owner of a home valued at $300,000 will continue to pay about $75 a year.
