Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall the constitutional limitation upon the total amount of taxes which may be levied on all taxable real and personal property in the Township of Macomb, County of Macomb, Michigan be increased by up to two (2) mills, ($2.00 for each $1,000) of taxable value of such property for a period of sixteen (16) years (January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2030) to provide revenue to be used exclusively for the payment of police protection?

The estimated revenue to be collected in the first year if the entire two (2) mills is levied is $5,542,377.00.

The Police Protection Millage was initially approved by the voters of Macomb Township in April of 1994 and renewed in 1999 and 2004. The current millage expires on December 31, 2014.

The proposed millage is a renewal of a previously authorized millage and does not constitute a new additional millage.[1][2]
