The Rockford Town Council enacted Resolution 12-1R concerning a proposition to finance 2013 fire protection services. This proposition would authorize the Town of Rockford to levy an excess property tax in 2013 on all taxable property within the Town of Rockford at an approximate rate of $0.51 per $1,000 of assessed value to raise $12,500 to be used to provide adequate services in 2013. This levy replaces an expiring levy, which the Town has collected in past years. Should this proposition be approved?
