Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the previous voted increase in the tax limitation imposed under Article IX, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution on general ad valorem taxes within Newfield Township be established at up to 1 mill ($1.00 per $1,000.00 of taxable value) for the period of 2012 and 2013 inclusive for fire protection, and shall the Township levy such renewal in millage for said purpose, thereby, raising in the first year an estimated $61,500.00? The proposed millage is a renewal of the 1 mill for the cost of Fire Protection previously approved by the electors of Newfield Township in the General Election of August 3, 2010 and which expired with the 2011 levy.[1][2]
