Two Tecumseh Library District Tax Levy proposals are on the May 7, 2013, election ballot in Lenawee County, which is in Michigan.

If approved, the first measure authorizes the Tecumseh Library District to impose a property tax levy of 1.15 mills ($1.15 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) for 10 years to fund library operations.

If approved, the second measure authorizes the Tecumseh Library District to impose a property tax levy of 0.2 mill ($0.2 per $1,000 of assessed valuation) for 10 years to fund library operations. This measure will only be authorized if voters approve both the first measure and this measure.[1]
