Two Tekonsha School District Levy Measures were on the May 3, 2011 ballot in the Tekonsha school district area which is in Branch and Calhoun Counties.

Both measures were approved

The first measure sought to renew the current non residential property tax which is set at a rate of 18 mills for one year in order to pay for operational costs of the district.

  • YES 111 Approveda
  • NO 40

The second measure sought to increase the current property tax rate by 1 mill for five years in order to pay for the sinking fund costs of the district.[1]

  • YES 101 Approveda
  • NO 50 [2]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the currently authorized millage rate limitation of 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, in Tekonsha Community Schools, Calhoun and Branch Counties, Michigan, be renewed for a period of 5 years, 2012 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 2012 is approximately $239,188 (this is a renewal of millage which will expire with the 2011 tax levy)?[3][4]
