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 Richmond, Macomb County, Michigan be increased in an amount not to exceed 2 mills for each $1.00 ($2.00 for each $1,000.00) of the taxable value of such property, for a period of four (4) years commencing 2012 and ending 2015, for the purpose of providing police protection within the Township of Richmond?
