SHERIFF'S ROAD PATROL (RENEWAL OF EXISTING MILLAGE) For the year 2010 and continuing through the year 2017, shall the total taxable property rate limitation in Tuscola County be lifted by .90 mills ($.90 for each $1,000 of valuation) for operation of the Tuscola County Sheriff's Road Patrol within Tuscola County?

This is a renewal of a previously voter-approved authorization that will expire before the effective date of this authorization.[3]
