That includes a detailed breakdown of how voters in different areas of Washtenaw County feel about a 1-mill property tax to pay for countywide transit services, showing the strongest support in Ann Arbor and the least support in Chelsea and the western townships.
A financial task force helping the AATA with its plans for a countywide transit expansion released a long-awaited funding report Wednesday showing a five-year countywide transit plan actually could be funded with a 0.5-mill countywide tax. That would equal $50 a year for a property with a taxable value of $100,000 or a market value of $200,000.
