Text of measure
The question on the ballot:
|Proposition 2: Shall the Charter Township of Redford be authorized to create a Special Assessment District encompassing all the lands within the township pursuant to Public Act 33 of 1951 to continue operating the township’s police department and fire department? The proposed assessment for the first year is estimated to be 3.6 mills, which would equal $3.60 per $1,000 of taxable value of all real property in the township, thereby raising in the first year an estimated $2.8 million. The average assessment in the first year would be approximately $144 for residential property.|
