Every vote is needed on Tue May 6th voters will be asked whether to renew a 10 year levy on non-homestead properties. The increase only effects non-homestead properties I.E. (business, second homes). If passed it will cost non-homestead only about $5.50 per $100,000 of property value. If defeated it will cost Plainwell Community Schools about $2,000,000 in money from state, this will cause cuts, (activities, programs, jobs,??)

The May 6 Election, Non-Homestead Millage On May 6, 2014, Otsego Public Schools is asking voters to renew the current 18-mill Non-Homestead millage. This is NOT an increase, but a 10-year RENEWAL of our current levy that voters passed ten years ago. Here are some facts: Q: Is this a new millage or a millage increase? A: No. This is a renewal. Taxpayers will be paying the same millage rate for this millage as they have paid for the past ten years. Q: What would be the impact to Otsego Public Schools if this millage is defeated? A: Otsego Public Schools receives $1.8 million (of the $19 million budget) annually from this millage. These funds are used for District operating expenses and cannot be replaced by other funding sources. Without these funds, budget cuts would be inevitable. Q: Does this impact all taxpayers in the district?

info@otsegochristianacademy.org

Plainwell Area Community Center

OTSEGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS

A: No. This tax is assessed against businesses and second homes, not homeowners or agricultural property. However, homeowners in the Otsego school district vote on the renewal. Q: Where do I vote? A: You would vote at the same location as a general election.

Please vote in this election. The polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Words of

“THE GRACE OF GOD IN ONE VERSE” John 3:16(NIV) The grace of God can be defined in various ways such as: • God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense • Unmerited favor • God’s gracious mercy and forgiveness • The ultimate expression of God’s love • Strength for daily living John 3:16 contains only twenty-six words yet provides a wonderful summary of the grace of God in one’s life. Consider the following: “For God so loved the world (Amazing Grace)

That he gave his one and only Son, (Enabling Grace) That whoever believes in him (Saving Grace)

Shall not perish (Transforming Grace) But have eternal life (Eternal Grace/Glorification/Heaven)

Prayer: Thank you Lord for the gift of Your grace in our lives. Amen. Peace to you and please join us for worship this Sunday in a church where Jesus’ love is lived. Happy Birthday (May 3) to my grace-filled mother, Eleanor Tubergen!
