Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property in Mar Lee School District, Calhoun County, Michigan, be increased by .75 mill ($0.75 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 5 years, 2013 to 2017, inclusive, to continue to provide for a sinking fund for the purchase of real estate for sites for, and the construction or repair of school buildings and all other purposes authorized by law; if approved, the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect the first year of levy, 2013, is approximately $38,945 (.7255 mill of the above is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2012 tax levy and .0245 mill is a restoration of millage lost as a result of the "Headlee" reduction)?[3]
