Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the City of Niles be authorized to renew and levy up to .50 cents ($.50) per thousand dollars ($1,000.00) (.50 mills) on the taxable value on all taxable property in the City of Niles for the purpose of providing public transportation including the operation of the "Dial-A-Ride" bus system, more properly known as Dial-A-Ride Transportation, for a period of two (2) consecutive years, to be levied in 2013 and 2014 (at one-half mill, the estimated revenue collected annually would be $99,192) following this election? This voted millage would not apply against the authorized (20) mill limit for assessed value of real and personal property of the City of Niles.[3]
