Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This proposal will allow the school district to continue 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 2 mills ($2.00 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 Charlotte Public Schools, Eaton County, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 3 years, 2013, 2014 and 2015, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2013 is approximately $46,750 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2012 tax levy, is to restore millage that may be lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963, and will only be levied to the extent necessary for the district to receive its full per pupil foundation allowance)?[1][2]
