Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the previously voted increase in the amount of taxes which may be levied against all property assessed for taxes in the City of Grand Haven, Ottawa County, Michigan, as reduced by the required millage rollback, be renewed at the reduced amount of .2454 mill ($0.2454 per $1,000 of taxable value) and increased by the amount of.0046 mill ($0.0046 per $1,000 of taxable value) both for a period of six (6) years (2013 through 2018, inclusive), which restores the millage to the 0.25 mill originally approved by the electors, to be paid to the Tri-Cities Historical Museum for the operation, maintenance, renovation and improvement of the Tri-Cities Historical Museum (currently located at the intersection of Washington Avenue and Second Street in the City of Grand Haven), which levy is estimated to raise $122,669 in the first year of the levy, and shall the City be authorized to levy said tax?[1][2]
