Language on the ballot:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

This proposal will allow the school district to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its revenue per pupil foundation allowance and renews millage that will expire with the 2012 tax levy.

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Tri-County Area Schools, Montcalm, Kent and Newaygo Counties, Michigan, be renewed for the year 2014, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2014 is approximately $2,450,000 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2013 tax levy)?[1]
