Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This proposal would restore the prior authorization and allow the School District of the City of Detroit to continue to levy mills previously levied for general operating purposes on non-

homestead property (mainly industrial and commercial real property and rental property) which expired with the 2012 tax levy. Owner occupied homes are exempt from this levy under existing law.

Shall the School District of the City of Detroit, County of Wayne, Michigan be authorized to levy 18.00 mills ($18.00 per $1,000 of taxable value) by increasing the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the school district which is not otherwise exempt, of which 17.8308 mills constitute a renewal of authorization which expired with the 2012 levy and 0.1692 mill constitutes that portion reduced by the operation of the Headlee amendment, for ten (10) years, the years 2013 to 2022, inclusive, to provide funds for operating expenses of School District? It is estimated that 18.00 mills would raise approximately $80,900,000.00 for the School District in the first year that it is levied.[1][2]
