Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This is a continuation of the original .1 of a mill previously approved by the voters. Shall the limitation of the amount of property taxes which may be assessed each year against all real and personal property in the County of Bay be increased by not more than .1 of a mill (10 cents per $1,000) for a period of 20 years, 2014-2033 inclusive, to be used to preserve Bay County's unique history, educate citizens, conduct projects, and operate and maintain a museum? This millage will raise estimated revenues of $250,000 in the first year of the levy.
