Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall the expiring 2012 previous voted increase in the tax limitation imposed under Article IX, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution in Ferry Township, of 1.5 mills ($1.50 per $1,000 of taxable value), which has not been reduced by any required millage rollbacks, be renewed at the same 1.5 mills ($1.50 per $1,000 of taxable value) and levied for 4 years, beginning in 2013 through 2016 inclusive, to provide funds for general operations and maintenance of the fire protection services within Ferry Township. This proposition will maintain the current fire protection millage at the same 1.5 mills last approved in 2008, and which expires with the last levy to be made in 2012. Shall Ferry Township levy such renewal millage for these purposes, thus raising in the first year an estimated $40,736.00 for Ferry Township fire protection purposes?
