Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall the Williamston Community Schools, County of Ingham, Michigan, be authorized to levy 1.00 mills to create a sinking fund for the purpose of the construction or repair of school buildings and the improvement and development of sites and for any other purpose which may be permitted by law, by increasing the limitation on the amount of taxes which may be imposed on taxable property in the School District for a period of ten (10) years, being the years 2013 to 2022, inclusive? It is estimated that 1.00 mills ($1.00 per $1,000 of taxable valuation) would raise approximately $385,000 when first levied in 2013.

(Under state law, sinking fund proceeds may not be used to pay teacher or administrator salaries.)[1][2]
