A Marilla Township Levy proposal was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Manistee County, which is in Michigan where it was defeated.

This proposal authorized the Township of Marilla to renew a property tax levy that was reduced by required rollbacks back to the original 1 mill ($1 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) for 4 years in order to fund general operation costs. The estimated first year revenue from this tax was $16,617.81.[1]
