Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

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.

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 Saint Louis Public Schools, Gratiot, Midland and Isabella Counties, Michigan, be increased by 18.2440 mills ($18.2440 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) for a period of 5 years, 2012 to 2016, inclusive, to provide funds for operating purposes (17.7440 mills of the above is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2013 tax levy and .5 mill is a restoration of millage lost as a result of the reduction required by the Michigan Constitution of 1963 and will be levied only to the extent necessary to restore that reduction); the estimate of the revenue the school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2012 is approximately $767,320?[1][2]
