Road Department Funding

Road department was funded in 2015 with revenue of $2,372,764 from the following sources:

  1. State Motor Vehicle License Taxes of $43,718 (2%)
  2. State Gasoline Taxes of $243,400 (10%)
  3. County Motor Vehicle License Taxes of $113,773 (5%)
  4. 2 Township voter approved Road Levies of $1,161,604 (49%)
  5. Transfers from the General Fund of $785,000 (33%)
  6. Other sources $25,269 (1%)

The Township Road levies consist of the 0.77 inside (non-voted) mill, a 1.0 mill levy originally passed by the voters in 1976 and a 1.5 mill levy originally passed in 1981 and a 0.5 mill levy first passed in 2015 that will go on the tax duplicate in 2017. In 2015 the 1.0 mill and 1.5 mill levies plus the inside mill of 0.77 collected approximately $1,160,000. If the 1.0 mill and 1.5 mill levies were assessed at their combined 2.5 voter approved rate, instead of the effective rate of approximately 1.30 mills, along with the inside mills of 0.77, the township would have collected approximately $1,800,000.e

In 2017 the $100,000 homeowner will pay approximately $85 a year in Road real estate taxes on the 3 voter approved levies and the inside millage of 0.77.

The Road department is responsibility for 116 miles of township roads, over 40 miles of storm sewers, over 70 miles of road side ditches and over 4,000 Catch Basins. Some of the Road department services and expenses include Annual Resurfacing Project, Snow Removal & Ice Control, Hot & Cold patch for Potholes and Street Sweeping.
