Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation on the amount of taxes which may be levied against all property in the Charter Township of Meridian, Ingham County (1) be renewed at 0.1 mills ($0.10 on each $1,000 of taxable value) to be disbursed to the Charter Township of Meridian to provide funding for senior citizen, recreation and human services programs throughout the Township; and (2) be increased 0.05 mills ($0.05 on each $1,000 of taxable value) to be disbursed to the Charter Township of Meridian to provide increased funding for senior citizen programs throughout the Township, both for a period of ten (10) years, 2012 to 2021 inclusive? The estimate of the revenue the Township would collect from this 0.15 mill renewed and new millage in the first year (if approved and levied in the 2012 calendar year) is approximately $233,000.[3]
