Approval rates

A Collier County Schools Levy Increase measure will be on the November 6, 2012 ballot in Collier County, where it was approved.

This measure sought to increase the current county school operations levy by .25 mills, but would also decrease the capital levy by the same amount so overall the tax rate would remain the same. The current levy would expire in June of 2013, so this measure is needed to ensure public schools in the county still receive funds.[1]

Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

Collier County School District proposes to renew the 2008 voter approved referendum to allow the District the option to reduce the capital tax millage by .25 mills and increase the operating millage by .25 mills to maintain economic stability. This will not result in any increase to the taxpayer. Shall the School District reduce the capital millage and increase the operating millage each by up to .25 mills for a four year period?[2]
