A Portland Public School District Levy Renewal proposal was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Clinton County, which is in Michigan, where it was approved.

This proposal authorized the Portland Public School District to renew the property tax limitation of 18 mills ($18 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) for 4 years in order to fund the general operations of the District. The estimated first year revenue from this tax is $1,250,000.[1]

Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

This proposal will allow the school district to levy the statutory rate of 18 mills on all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, required for the school district to receive its revenue per pupil foundation allowance and renews millage that will expire with the 2012 tax levy.

Shall the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Portland Public Schools, Ionia, Clinton and Eaton Counties, Michigan, be renewed by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 4 years, 2013 to 2016, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2013 is approximately $1,250,000 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2012 tax levy)?[1]
