A River School Non Residential Levy Renewal was on the August 7, 2012 ballot in the River school district, which is in Berrien County.

This measure was approved

  • YES 14 Approveda
  • NO 5 [1]

This measure sought to renew the current non residential levy which is set at a rate of $18 per $1,000 of assessed value for a further three years in order to continue to pay for operational costs in the district.[2]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

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 School District No. 5, Sodus Township (River School), Berrien County, Michigan, be increased by 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 3 years, 2012, 2013 and 2014, to provide funds for operating purposes; the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2012 is approximately $25,754 (this is a renewal of millage which expired with the 2011 tax levy)?[3]
