Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in the School District of the City of River Rouge, Wayne County, Michigan, be increased by 1 mill ($1.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 2 years, 2011 and 2012, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2011 is approximately $167,000 (this is a partial renewal of millage which expired with the 2010 tax levy and will be used only to restore millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963)?|
