PREPPING FOR 2020

August 21, 2018

Remember the 2010 DIA tax vote in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties and the suggestion that it was a one-time levy to allow time to build up the institute’s endowment to cover future operating costs? Surprise – the DIA is doing advance footwork for what could be a retake on the 10-year, .2 mill tax (scheduled to be last collected in 2021), based on a recent phone survey someone is running on behalf of the DIA. The phone poll asks a laundry list of questions. Among them, would you support a renewal of the tax. Then, if you were told that the original levy was to be a one-time event but now you were asked to support it again, would your answer change? Interestingly, polling personnel also asked who you think would be a good frontman for the DIA renewal – among the names tossed out, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson. Stay tuned.
