A East Lansing City School District Bond proposal was approved on the February 26, 2013 election ballot in Clinton and Ingham Counties, which are in Michigan.

This measure authorized the School District of East Lansing City to increase its debt by $5.3 million through issuing general obligation bonds in that amount in order to fund the instructional technology and the remodeling and equipping of school facilities. These bonds would mature in no more than five years and the estimated annual property tax rate required to pay back this debt is 1.25 mills ($1.25 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) over the life of the bonds.[1]

Shall the School District of the City of East Lansing, Ingham and Clinton Counties, Michigan, borrow the sum of not to exceed Five Million Three Hundred Thousand Dollars ($5,300,000) and issue its general obligation unlimited tax bonds therefor, for the purpose of:

The estimated millage that will be levied for the proposed bonds in 2013, is 1.25 mills ($1.25 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation). The maximum number of years the bonds may be outstanding, exclusive of any refunding, is five (5) years.
