Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

To support the East Lansing Public Library, shall the City of East Lansing be authorized pursuant to MCL 397.201 to impose a new millage of up to 1 mill ($1 per $1,000 of taxable value), for a period of ten (10) years (2013-2022) inclusive, to be deposited in a separate fund for the exclusive use of the East Lansing Public Library under the direction of the East Lansing Library Board? Such millage, if fully levied, would raise an estimated $840,000 in the first year.

[All amounts levied under this millage on property located outside the Downtown Development Authority or Brownfield Redevelopment Authority will be disbursed directly to the East Lansing Library Board for the exclusive use of the East Lansing Public Library. The law requires that fixed amounts levied under this millage on property located within the Downtown Development Authority or Brownfield Redevelopment Authority be disbursed to those authorities. Disbursements to those other authorities account for less than 4% of the total millage revenue.][1][2]
