Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This authorization will allow the Dexter Community Schools to levy mills previously authorized for general operating purposes on non-homestead property for which authority expires with the District's 2013 tax levy. If the Non-Homestead Millage Reauthorization Proposal is also approved by the electors, approval of this proposal would assure the School District of the authority to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills against non-homestead property required for the School District to receive revenues at the full foundation allowance permitted by the State compensating for future Headlee rollbacks of up to 3.00 mills.

Shall the Dexter Community Schools, Counties of Washtenaw and Livingston, Michigan be authorized to levy 3.00 mills ($3.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) by increasing the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable non-homestead property in the school district, for twenty (20) years, the years 2014 to 2033, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses of the District? This millage would raise approximately $41,000 in the first year that it is levied.[1][2]
