Fire, police assessments approved for Village

By Kevin Elliott

Bloomfield Township trustees on Monday, October 24, unanimously approved 2022-2023 assessment rates at a combined total of 1.55 mills for the Bloomfield Village Police Department and Volunteer Fire Department.

Bloomfield Township Finance Director Jason Theis, who assisted the village with the department budgets, said special assessment rates for the village services are based on the budget and estimated taxable value of properties.

The assessment rate for the village’s police department is 1.18 mills, which is expected to generate $500,000 in revenue; the assessment for the volunteer fire department is 0.37 mills and is expected to generate $155,000 in revenues.

The Bloomfield Village Police Department budget approved in March 2022 of $500,000 is about $25,000 less than the previous year. The volunteer fire department has an approved budget of $155,000 – down about $15,000 from the previous year.

Bloomfield Village’s police and fire services are funded through a special assessment district that is paid for by property owners within the Village, a part of Bloomfield Township. The majority of the police and fire division members are retired public safety workers from the township and other neighboring communities.
