Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

For the purpose of continuing funding for a comprehensive, Countywide Enhanced 9-1-1 Emergency Telephone and Central Dispatch System, shall the constitutional limitation upon the total amount of taxes which may be assessed in one (1) year upon all taxable real and tangible personal property within the County of Eaton, Michigan, be increased in an amount not to exceed 0.95 mill ($0.95 on each $1,000 of taxable value) for a period of five (5) years (2014-2018) inclusive and shall the County levy such millage for said purposes? If approved and levied in its entirety, this millage would raise an estimated $3,154,049 in 2014 to be distributed to the countywide 9-1-1 and Central Dispatch System as provided in the Eaton County 9-1-1 Service Plan.[3]
