The question on the ballot:

Proposition 1: Shall the limitation of the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the County of Dickinson, State of Michigan, be increased by .25 of one mill per thousand dollars of taxable value, which is twenty-five cents ($.25 per one thousand dollars, $1000) of taxable value for a period of five years, 2014 to 2018 inclusive, to provide funds for the operation and maintenance of the senior citizens centers and programs in Dickinson County? It is estimated that the .25 mill would raise approximately $234,000 when first levied in 2014. This is a renewal.

Proposition 2: Shall the limitation of the amount of taxes which may be imposed on the taxable property in the County of Dickinson, State of Michigan, be increased by .15 of one mill per thousand dollars of taxable value, which is fifteen cents ($.15 per one thousand dollars $1000) of taxable value for a period of five years, 2014 to 2018, inclusive, to provide funds to support the senior centers and programs in Dickinson County? It is estimated that the .15 mill would raise approximately $140,000 when first levied in 2014. This is a renewal.[3]
