Text of measure
Language on the ballot:
|| This proposal will allow the school district to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its revenue per pupil foundation allowance and renews millage that will expire with the 2013 tax levy. The remaining 1.7692 mills are only available to be levied to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the "Headlee" amendment to the Michigan Constitution of 1963, as amended, and will only be levied to the extent necessary to restore that reduction.
Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 19.7692 mills ($19.7692 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Whitefish Township Community Schools, Chippewa County, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 3 years, 2014, 2015 and 2016, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2014 is approximately $852,801 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2013 tax levy)?
