Farmington Hills officials host road millage community meetings

Farmington Hills residents will have seven opportunities in September and October to learn more about a local road millage on the November 6 ballot.

The proposal would eliminate the Special Assessment District (SAD) method of funding construction, which requires a majority of property owners in a subdivision to petition for the work and limits the city’s contribution to 20 percent of the cost.

If supported by voters, the perpetual, 2.75-mill levy would fund road repairs, zero out unpaid balances on special assessments, and reimburse property owners who have paid off special assessments. The levy would generate more than $9.2 million in its first year. 

The outreach meetings will be held:

  • Meeting with the Mayor – Sept. 13, 7 p.m., Fire Station 3, 29260 Grand River Avenue
  • Meeting with the Mayor – Sept. 19, 7 p.m., Fire Station 4, 28711 Drake Road
