A Ann Arbor School District Levy Increase
measure will be on the February 28, 2012
ballot in the Ann Arbor school district area which is in Washtenaw County
This measure seeks to increase the current property tax by a rate of .5 mills for a period of ten years. The additional money would go towards upgrading technology throughout the district. School officials had debated on the date to propose the levy, decided ultimately on February and not November as there would be more time to decide the language with a February election date and the time between the two election dates would not make much difference for the schools getting the money, if the measure is approved. School officials also noted that the need for upgrades in technology is needed, it was only a question of timing the proposal.
