Nothing! Contrary to popular belief, property taxes do not come to the Road Commission. However, residents may "tax" themselves in one of two ways. First, is for a special assessment district for a specific project their property fronts. Secondly is through either a township-wide or county-wide millage. Grand Traverse County has many county-wide millages, such as school, library, BATA, etc. In 2016 voters renewed a four-year, one mil tax for county-wide road improvements. Our main revenue source comes from the MIchigan Transportation Fund as a result of the purchases of gasoline and diesel fuels. Revenues also come from vehicle registration renewal which is shared with the Secretary of State for administration and processing the vehicle data. The fees collected fund 83 county road agencies, cities and villages with road systems and public transit.
