Text of measure

Language on the ballot:


This proposal will allow the school district to continue to levy 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 its revenue per pupil foundation allowance. The remaining .5548 mill is only available to be levied to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the "Headlee" amendment to the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and will only be levied to the extent necessary to restore that reduction. Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18.5548 mills ($18.5548 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 Gull Lake community Schools, Kalamazoo, Barry and Calhoun Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 20 years, 2014 to 2033, 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 $3,234,938 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2013 tax levy)?[1][2]
