The question on the ballot:

Shall the previous voted increase in the tax limitations imposed under Article IX, Section 6 of the Michigan Constitution upon general ad valorem taxes on real and personal property within Jamestown Charter Township reduced by required rollback to .5 mills (2012-tentative) be renewed at .5 mill ($.50 per $1,000 of taxable value) for a period of four years, 2013-2016, inclusive, for the purpose of providing funds for the purchase of new equipment for the Jamestown Charter Township Fire Department; and shall Jamestown Charter Township be authorized to levy such millage for such purpose? If that renewal millage is authorized and levied, the amount the Township will collect in the first year is estimated to be $135,000.[1][2]
