Why it Matters: The operating millage includes general operation millage and debt service collected by taxes. It does not include library millages, public safety, and other services where a dedicated millage is collected for these services. It does not included school pass though, county collections or regional transportation. Operating millage comparisons do not take into account differing burdens of Commercial versus Residential taxes and may not indicate comparable tax burdens on residents. (n005) (o101)
