A Dowagian Union School District Non Residential Property Tax Renewal measure will be on the May 3, 2011 ballot in the Dowagian Union school district area which is in Berrien, Cass and Van Buren Counties.

This measure seeks to renew the current levy on non residential property which is set at a rate of $18 per $1,000 of assessed property value for one year in order to help pay for operational costs of the district.[1]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Dowagiac Union School District, Cass, Van Buren and Berrien Counties, Michigan, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for the year 2011, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2011 is approximately $4,507,000 (this is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2010 tax levy)?[2]
