Shall the Romeo Community Schools be authorized to levy one and one-quarter (1.25) mills ($1.25 per $1,000 of taxable value), for a period of four (4) years, from July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2016 to create a building and site sinking fund for the purpose of the construction or repair of school buildings or any other purpose allowed under Michigan law? This millage is a request for a renewal of the voter approved building and site sinking fund tax levy which will expire on June 30, 2012. This millage would provide estimated revenues to the Romeo Community Schools of approximately One Million Nine Hundred Thousand and 00/100 ($1,900,000.00) Dollars during the 2012 calendar year, if approved and levied.
