The Sparta Recreation Authority
Millage Proposal is...
the proposal on the November 6th ballot that needs your help. We have done the research and laid the groundwork. We have confidence that the timing is right to make the vision a reality. Now is time for the community of Sparta to show support and vote yes on the millage for phase 1 of our new recreation park and sports facility.

The ballot proposal is 1.00 mill for only five years to help fund the rest of the phase 1 portion. Phase 1 completion will give all of our youth sports organizations what they need to continue their programs; it will give residents a park for leisure activities and local businesses a great boost in their business growth. We have dedicated ourselves as residents, youth leaders, business owners and parents to raising the rest of the funds to complete future phases of the park.

What does this mean to you?
($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) on all taxable property for a period of only five (5) years, 2012 through 2016.
The ballot proposal is written like this:

Shall the Sparta Recreational Authority (the “Authority”) formed by the Sparta Township and Sparta Village levy a new additional millage in the amount of up to 1.00 mill ($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) on all taxable property within the territory of the Authority for a period of five (5) years, 2012 through 2016, inclusive, to provide funds for the design, acquisition, construction, equipping, operation and maintenance of a public recreational complex/facility as authorized by Public Act No. 321 of 2000, as amended, thereby raising an estimated $ 244,685 in the first year of this levy? To the extent required by law, a small portion of the revenues from this millage (approximately 4.3% in the first year of the levy) will be captured within the district of and disbursed to the Village of Sparta Downtown Development Authority.      Yes______ No______
