Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This proposal is for a millage which, if approved, will be levied only against non-homestead and qualified agricultural property. Together with other approved millage, this millage will allow Monroe Public Schools to levy up to, but not more than the previously authorized 18 mills, to provide in part the funds to operate and maintain the school system.

Shall the 18 mill limitation ($18.00 on each $1,000) previously approved by the electors as an increase to the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property in the Monroe Public Schools, County of Monroe, State of Michigan, except homestead property and qualified agricultural property as defined by law, be renewed for five (5) years, 2014 to 2018, inclusive, to provide in part the funds to operate and maintain the school system? It is estimated that the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in the 2014 calendar year shall be approximately $17,354,939 from the local taxes authorized in this proposal.[1][2]
