DIA millage wasMacomb County began talks of suspending a millage that supports the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) in 2013.
With the City of Detroit going through municipal bankruptcy, officials had considered the possibility of selling DIA assets to resolve debt. In August, Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel said his offices and Oakland County would look into discontinuing the 0.2 millage or payments should art be sold.
Graham Beal, DIA director, said a discontinued millage would essentially close the museum. Of the $23 million collected, Macomb County contributes $5 million, while Oakland County provides $10 million. Wayne County gives $8 million.
