Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Oakridge Public Schools, Muskegon and Newaygo Counties, Michigan, be increased by 18.5566 mills ($18.5566 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 5 years, 2011 to 2015, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2011 is approximately $936,000 (18.2708 mills is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2010 tax levy and .2858 mill is a restoration of millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the “Headlee” amendment)?[3]
