Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Measure 1: Shall the Charter Township of Orion be authorized to continue the previously authorized levy of .9916 mills for a period of 4 years beginning December 2012 and expiring December 2015 to provide fire protection services for the operation and maintenance of the Orion Township Fire Department, including the purchase of equipment and buildings to serve the Charter Township of Orion and the Village of Lake Orion? Approval of this proposal would authorize the levy of approximately $.9916 per $1,000 of taxable value on all property in the Township and the Village of Lake Orion. It is estimated that this proposal would result in authorization to collect approximately $1,297,750 in the first year if approved and levied. A property with taxable value of $50,000 would be taxed $49.58 for the millage.[2]
