Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the existing previously voted increase in the tax limitation imposed under Article IX, Section 6 of the Michigan Constitution in Royalton Township, of 1.00 mills ($1.00 per $1,000.00 of taxable value) reduced to 0.9969 mills ($0.9969 per $1,000.00 of taxable value) by required millage rollbacks, be increased to and renewed at the original voted 1.00 ($1.00 per $1,000.00 of taxable value) and levied for six (6) years, 2013 through 2018 inclusive; thereby raising an estimated first year revenue in 2013 of $258,430.00 (of which approximately $0.80 is generated by the increased millage to account for the millage roll back); the first year millage estimate is based upon the most recent information regarding taxable value of real and personal property in Royalton Township; these funds to be used by Royalton Township for the continued funding of road maintenance and repairs within Royalton Township?[3]
