Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|=Shall the City of Bloomfield Hills be authorized to levy a new library millage of .39 mills per year for a period of three years commencing with the July, 2012 levy to fund a library contract with the Baldwin Public Library of Birmingham, Michigan, to provide library services for the residents of the City of Bloomfield Hills? Library services would include full library privileges to the Baldwin Library, including borrowing privileges and other services of the Baldwin Library on the same basis as the same are available to residents of the City of Birmingham. Approval of this proposal would permit a tax limitation levy of $.39 per $1,000 of taxable value on all taxable property in the City. The amount of revenue the City of Bloomfield Hills will collect if the millage is approved and levied by the City in the first calendar year is estimated to be $289,363.|
