Shall the South Redford School District, County of Wayne, Michigan, be authorized to levy 2.00 mills ($2.00 per $1,000 of taxable valuation) to create a sinking fund for the purpose of the construction or repair of school buildings and the improvement and development of sites, and for any other purpose permitted by law, by increasing the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the School District for a period of ten (10) years, being the years 2013 to 2022, inclusive?
