This proposal would restore the perpetual City of Benton Harbor Charter millage authorization previously approved by the electors, and rolled back by operation of the Headlee amendment, to 10 mills.

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the City of Benton Harbor, County of Berrien, Michigan, be increased by 2.0694 mills ($2.0694 dollars per thousand dollars of taxable value) as new additional millage in excess of the limitation imposed by Michigan Compiled Laws section 211.34d, to restore City Charter millage authorization previously approved by the electors as reduced by operation of the Headlee amendment, to provide funds for general operating purposes? It is estimated that 2.0694 mills would raise approximately $242,410 when first levied in 2013.[1]
