Two Midland County Road Levy Measures was on the August 7, 2012 ballot in Midland County.

The first measure sought to renew the current road levy which is set at a rate of 1 mill for road projects in the county.

  • YES 9,127 (67.9%)Approveda
  • NO 4,317 (32.1%)

The second measure would have increased the current road levy by a rate of 1 mill for use on road projects as well.

  • YES 5,071 (41.8%)
  • NO 7,063 (58.2%)Defeatedd[1]

Commissioners noted that while both were approved to be on the ballot, few did not think the increase was completely necessary. But others noted that decreases in state funding have left budget gaps and the road commission is not required to levy the full increase amount if it does get approved.[2]
