This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

Levy Renewal: Shall the previously authorized Police and Fire tax levy by The Charter Township of West Bloomfield of up to 3.1378 mills or less, as reduced by required millage rollbacks, be renewed after it expires in 2011 for a period of ten years, from 2012 through 2021? The renewed millage is exclusively for the costs and expenses of the Township Public Safety (Police, Fire, EMS and Dispatch) Departments. Approval of this proposal would renew the tax limitation levy of 3.1378 mills or less if reduced by millage rollback ($3.1378 per $1000 of taxable value) on all taxable property in the Township. It is estimated that this proposal would result in the authorization to collect up to $9,948,842 in the first year if approved and levied.

Levy Increase: Shall The Charter Township of West Bloomfield be authorized to increase the levy of taxes by up to 2.85 mills for a period of 11 years from 2011 through 2021? The increased millage is exclusively for the costs and expenses of the Township Public Safety (Police, Fire, EMS and Dispatch) Departments. Approval of this proposal would authorize a tax limitation increase of 2.85 mills ($2.85 per $1000 of taxable value) on all taxable property in the Township. It is estimated that this proposal would result in the authorization to collect up to $9,036,331 in the first year if approved and levied.
