Am I math challenged or is the fixmeridianroads group not talking to them selves // Don Bosman

Today we received a second brochure touting a vote to tax ourselves more.
The brochure lists taxes on a $200,000.00 home at $169.28

If you go to the website https://clerk.ingham.org/Department/County%20Clerk/Elections/Election%20Results/August%202019%20Proposal%20Language.pdf
through the link at https://fixmeridianroads.com/the-solution to read the sample ballot language, it states the millage will be for 1.9428, which by my math equals $194.28 on a $200,000.00 home. 

I’ve used a calculator to triple check my math. What am I missing?

  1. You’re missing the fact that the proposed 1.9428 millage would replace a .25 millage. The $169.28 figure would be the *increase* in tax for a $200,000 home. I haven’t seen the brochure, so I can’t confirm whether they actually stated it wrong, or just had vague wording.
