Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|| This millage will allow the school district to continue to levy not more than the statutory rate of 18 mills against non-principal residence and nonqualified agricultural property required for the school district to continue to receive its full revenue per pupil foundation allowance. Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all taxable property except principal residence and qualified agricultural property as defined by law, in Almont Community Schools, Counties of Lapeer, St. Clair, Macomb and Oakland, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of two (2) years, 2011 and 2012, inclusive, to provide in part the funds to operate and maintain the school system? It is estimated that the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in the 2011 calendar year will be approximately $849,651 from the local taxes authorized in this proposal. The proposed millage is a renewal of a previously authorized millage of 18 mills.
