Saginaw School District Disabilities Levy Increase (November 2011)
This measure was defeated
- YES 8,565 (41.41%)
- NO 12,116 (58.59%)
This measure sought to increase the current levy by a rate of $1.46 per $1,000 of assessed property value for a period of twenty years in order to further pay for disability services in the school district. School officials noted that there had not been an increase in the disabilities levy since 1974 and see this as just a way to keep providing the services already offered by the schools.
