Missaukee County Proposition for Recycling Millage March 10, 2020

  • This proposal is for a new millage and will permit the county to levy up to 0.25 mill to provide funds for the operation and maintenance of a county recycling program.
  • The millage will provide stable funding for Missaukee County Recycling; provide matching dollars when pursuing State, Federal and local grants; education; electronic and other collections.
  • For the past 10 years the Missaukee County Recycling Center has been operated primarily through a USDA Rural Development grant that is highly competitive and was not received for fiscal year 2020. While a grant proposal was submitted for fiscal year 2021 it’s unsure as to whether it will be received
  • Missaukee County has recycled 6.5 million pounds of material since 2008. This millage will allow the Missaukee County Recycling Center to continue operations after September 30, 2020.
