Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall the previous voted increase in the Township of Pentwater tax rate limitation imposed under Article IX, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution on general ad valorem taxes, currently 0.3487 mill ($0.3487 per $1,000 of taxable value), be renewed and levied in the years 2013-2016, both inclusive, and shall an additional 0.0013 mill ($0.0013 per $1,000 of taxable value) be approved and levied to restore previous millage reductions under the "Headlee Amendment" since this millage was last approved, resulting in the levy of 0.3500 mill ($0.35 per $1,000 of taxable value), subject to reduction as provided by law, on taxable property in the Township? The purpose of this levy is to provide for the maintenance of and improvements to the Pentwater Township Cemetery for the Township. It is estimated that a levy of 0.3500 mill would provide revenue of $69,126 in the first calendar year, of which $257 would result from the additional 0.0013 mill. The revenue from this millage levy will be disbursed to the Township of Pentwater.
