|| Shall the County of Lapeer be authorized to levy a new tax in an amount of .10 mills (10 cents per $1,000 of taxable value)? This shall be levied on the taxable value on all property in Lapeer County, subject to ad valorem taxation for a period of six (6) years, 2012 through 2017, inclusive for the purpose of providing support to veterans and their families and providing financial support for the administration of the Department of Veterans' Affairs of Lapeer County, as permitted by Michigan Public Act 214 of 1899 and Public Act 192 of 1953. It is estimated that, if approved, the millage would raise approximately $263,647.00 in 2012, which is the first year of the levy. For example, on a property having a taxable value of $50,000, .10 mills would be $5.00 of levied tax annually.
