Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

May Ada Township levy up to 0.80 mills ($0.80 per $1,000 of taxable value) for a period of five (5) years beginning in the year 2012 and continuing through the year 2016, inclusive, to provide funds for police protection within the Township and for maintenance, equipment and operation of the Township's Fire Department? This millage is a renewal (at a lower rate) of the 1.00 mill previously approved by the voters for 2007 through 2011 (rolled back under the Headlee Amendment to 0.9955 mills for the 2011 levy). The Township estimates that this levy would raise $704,422 in its first year.[3]
