A Message from the Superintendent
August 2, 2022 Multigenerational Activity Millage Proposal
On Tuesday, August 2, 2022, residents of Dexter Community Schools will vote on a 1.0 mill, 20-year, recreation millage. This Multigenerational Activity Millage creates a funding mechanism to support multigenerational activities for anyone in the Dexter community.
The Board of Education unanimously supports the size and scope of this proposal.
Decisions made regarding this proposal were based on community interest. Over the past several years, various entities in the Dexter Community have conducted surveys, focus groups, and studies (i.e. Dexter Community Fund, Dexter Senior Center, DCS) and all have demonstrated overwhelming interest in supporting Dexter seniors, community activities, activities for kids and a desire for a community center.
The Recreation Millage can be used to pay for community recreation, construction/maintenance of recreation facilities and programming for DCS residents. This includes support for the Dexter Senior Center, DCS Community Education Programming, and all DCS pools, fields, playgrounds and our Center for Performing Arts.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the upcoming Multigenerational Activity Millage Proposal. I also encourage you to attend one of the several Community Forums scheduled between now and August 2, 2022.
In addition, I’d welcome the opportunity to make a presentation to a neighborhood group or school/community organization of your choice.
Thank you for your continued support and for voting on August 2, 2022.
Christopher J. Timmis, Ed.D., Superintendent
Dexter Community Schools
