Bloomfield Village millage rate approved

October 2, 2020

Bloomfield Township trustees unanimously approved a Bloomfield Village combined police and fire millage rate of 1.634 mills for fiscal year 2020-2021 at their meeting on Tuesday, September 29.

“We do this every year and this is a pass through from the village to the township. We collect it then fund it back,” said Leo Savoie, Bloomfield Township Supervisor.

The passed millage rate for the police was 1.256 mills. For the fire division the approved millage rate was .378 mills.

Bloomfield Village’s police and fire division is established through a special assessment district (SAD). The police department has five officers and the fire division has one full-time paid firefighter and a number of volunteers.

Bloomfield Village police officers are retired officers from other police forces, and many used to serve on the Bloomfield Township police force. They are paid by Bloomfield Township but funded through the millage.



Savoie said the Bloomfield Village board looks at their expenses and then determines the appropriate millage times the taxable value on property in order to come up with the necessary revenue to fund their operations.
