Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This proposal would reauthorize the levy of mills by the Dexter Community Schools for general operating purposes, and would restore the authority lost through application of the Headlee Amendment to the Michigan Constitution. The School District's existing authorization, which has been reduced by application of the Headlee Amendment, expires with the 2013 levy. Approval of this proposal together with other millage authority proposed to be approved by the voters would assure the School District of the authority to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills against non-homestead property required for the School District to receive revenues from the State at the full foundation allowance permitted by the State.

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable non-homestead property in the Dexter Community Schools, Counties of Washtenaw and Livingston, Michigan, be increased by 18.00 mills ($18.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) for twenty (20) years, the years 2014 to 2033, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses of the District? If approved, this millage would raise an estimated $4,130,000 for the District in 2014.[1][2]
