Genesee County Veterans Levy Increase (November 2010)
This measure was defeated
- YES 56,355 (46.65%)
- NO 64,449 (53.35%)
This measure sought to increase the current veteran levy by a rate of $.15 per $1,000 of assessed property value for a further ten years in order to further support veteran services offered by the county. Some residents were opposed to this measure because a portion of the measure designated that local authorities would have also been able to take money from this levy increase, meaning not all the funds would have gone towards veterans. Though the county attorney noted that only a small portion would have been given towards local authorities but not enough to have voted against it.
