Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|| Shall the previously voted increase in the constitutional tax limitation on general ad valorem taxes in the Township of Everett be renewed at .25 mills ($.25 per $1,000 of taxable value) and levied on real and personal taxable property for four (4) years, 2012 through 2015, inclusive, for the purpose of operating and maintaining Township cemeteries and for cemeteries located elsewhere which are operated by the Township? This millage renewal would raise an estimated $10,927 in the first year of the levy.
