Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Brimley Area Schools, Chippewa County, Michigan, be increased by 3.4775 mills ($3.4775 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 4 years, 2012 to 2015, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2012 is approximately $140,100 (this millage is a renewal of millage that expired in 2011 and will be levied only to the extent necessary to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963)?[3]
