The first proposal renewed a property tax of 17.7264 mills and the second proposal authorized a property tax increase of .2736 mill. The estimated first year revenue from this combined tax is $745,351.[1]

Text of measure

Language on the ballot for the first proposal:

This proposal will allow the school district to levy a portion of the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive a portion of its revenue per pupil foundation allowance and renews millage that will expire with the 2013 tax levy.

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 17.7264 mills ($17.7264 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Bronson Community School District, Branch and St. Joseph Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 19 years, 2014 to 2032, 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 2014 is approximately $745,351 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2013 tax levy)?[2]

Language on the ballot for the second proposal:

This proposal will allow the school district to levy a portion of the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive a portion of its revenue per pupil foundation allowance.

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 Bronson Community School District, Branch and St. Joseph Counties, Michigan, be increased by .2736 mill ($0.2736 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 19 years, 2014 to 2032, 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 2014 is approximately $11,765 (this millage is to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963)?[1][2]
