A Dowagiac School District Non Residential Property Tax Renewal measure was on the May 8, 2012 ballot in the Dowagiac school district area which is in Cass County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 637 Approveda
  • NO 183 [1]

This measure sought to renew the current non residential property tax which is set at a rate of $18 per $1,000 of assessed value for one year in order to continue to pay for operational costs of the school district.[2]

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 Edwardsburg Public Schools, Cass County, Michigan, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for the year 2012, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2012 is approximately $1,566,795 (this is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2011 tax levy)?[3]
