Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the Charter of Township of Oakland be authorized to continue the previously authorized levy of up to .1170 of one mill (which is less than 1/8 of one mill) for a period of ten (10) years, starting with the December 2012 levy, for the purpose of continuing to fund historic preservation, education, restoration, acquisition, and maintenance within Oakland Township? As part of this purpose, this millage includes funding for the development and maintenance of the Cranberry Lake Farm Historic District, the township owned National Register of Historic Places site as an historical community center. This proposed millage is a renewal of a previously authorized millage to be distributed to the Charter Township of Oakland for these purposes. Approval of this proposal would renew a tax limitation increase of 11.7 cents per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the township, or $11.70 per year on a home with a taxable value of $100,000. It is estimated that this proposal would result in the authorization to collect approximately $117,000 in the first year if approved by voters and levied.[1][2]
