  • Community Aquatic Center Bond Proposal
    • Shall the Mid-Michigan Aquatics Recreational Authority, formed by the City of Mount Pleasant, Charter Township of Union and the Mt. Pleasant Public Schools, borrow the sum of not to exceed Twenty-Five Million Dollars ($25,000,000) and issue its general obligation unlimited tax bonds for all or a portion of that amount, in one or more series, payable in not to exceed twenty-five (25) years from the date of issuance, for the purpose of:

      constructing, equipping, and furnishing a new indoor community aquatic center for public use with year-round access, including a multi-purpose pool that can be used for education, recreation, and competition, and a warmer water therapy and teaching pool to support health, fitness, and rehabilitation?

      The estimated millage to be levied in 2024 is 1.18 mills ($1.18 per $1,000 of taxable value) and the estimated simple average annual millage rate required to retire the bonds is 1.00 mill ($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value). This is expected to result in an increase of $75 in the tax levied on property with a cash value of $150,000 (taxable value of $75,000) for a period of 25 years.

      The Recreational Authority is subject to annual independent audits as required by state law.
