Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This proposal renews a building and site sinking fund millage set to expire with the 2013 tax levy.

Shall the 1 mill limitation ($1.00 on each $1,000 of taxable value) previously approved by the electors which may be assessed against all taxable property in the Monroe Public Schools, County of Monroe, State of Michigan, be renewed and thus continued for five (5) years beyond its scheduled 2013 expiration, for the calendar years 2014 to 2018, inclusive, to continue to provide for a sinking fund for the construction or repair of school buildings and all other purposes authorized by law? It is estimated that the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in the 2014 calendar year will be approximately $1,717,204 from the local taxes authorized in this proposal. The proposed millage is a renewal of a previously authorized millage of 1 mill.[1][2]
