Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

If the full amount of the property taxes authorized by this proposed amendment is levied by the Village Council in the year 2013, then the estimated amount of revenue that will be collected is $763,000. Should Section 8.5 of the Village of Milford Charter be amended to include a new additional millage that would increase the Charter tax rate by 3.5 mills (which is equal to $3.50 per $1,000 of taxable value) for ten years, 2013 through 2022, and then reduced to 1.0 mill increase over the charter tax rate (which is equal to $1.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) for an additional ten years, 2023 through 2032, for the purpose of defraying the cost of major and local road maintenance?[1][2]
