A Recreation Millage is a tax levy that allows school districts to use voter-approved funds to operate a system of public recreation and playgrounds.
The Recreation Millage helps fund the Northview Community Fitness and Aquatic Center, supports the maintenance of our athletic fields, and allows for Northview Public Schools to not require families to pay to participate in middle and high school athletics or band.

What is a Building and Site Sinking Fund?
A Building and Site Sinking Fund is a savings account into which a local school district can deposit voter-approved local millage revenue to pay cash for projects, repairs, and technology. These funds CANNOT BE USED FOR salaries and benefits.
This millage is a limited property tax, considered a “pay-as-you-go” method for funding building repairs and infrastructure projects. No debt or interest expense is incurred with a Building and Site Sinking Fund.
