What properties does the Operating Millage affect? The non-homestead Operating Millage is not levied on primary residences (the home in which a homeowner lives); it only applies to businesses, second homes, vacant land, and rental property. All school districts in Michigan must levy 18 mills on non-homestead property to receive their full share of State Aid (i.e., foundation allowance).

Meridian Public Schools has an Operating Millage Renewal on the August ballot. What is an Operating Millage? An Operating Millage generates revenue to support the operating budget. The operating budget funds essential day-to-day expenses such as staff compensation, utilities, and all K-12 educational programs. It is levied on secondary homes, businesses, and rental/investment properties, NOT primary residences.
