The question on the ballot:

In support of continued operation of the Bridgman City Library, shall the limitation on the total amount of taxes which may be assessed against the taxable valuation of all property in the City of Bridgman liable for taxation be set at one mill ($1.00 per each $1,000 of taxable valuation, as equalized). The authorization to renew the levy of said millage is for a period of five (5) years, being the years of 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. It is estimated that the amount of revenue to be generated from the total millage in the first year of levy (2013) will be approximately $99,193.00.[3]
