|Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the City of Berkley be increased by 3 mills ($3.00 per thousand dollars of taxable value), beginning in 2013 as new additional millage in excess of the limitation imposed by Michigan Compiled Laws section 211.34d, to partially restore City Charter millage authorization previously approved by the electors as reduced by operation of the Headlee amendment, to provide funds for municipal operating purposes, including police and fire, library, parks, public works and sanitation services? It is estimated that 3 mills would raise approximately $1,362,000 when first levied in 2013.|
