The question on the ballot:

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation on the amount of taxes which may be levied against all property in the Charter Township of Meridian, Ingham County, Michigan (currently scheduled to expire at the end of the 2013 calendar year), be renewed at 0.25 mills ($0.25 on each $1,000 of taxable value), to be disbursed to the Charter Township of Meridian to provide funding for the preservation, maintenance and resurfacing of roads within the Township for a period of ten (10) years, 2014 to 2023, inclusive? The estimate of the revenue that the Township would collect from this 0.25 mill renewal in the first year (if levied in 2014) is approximately $390,000.[3]
