- YES 1,492 (70.05%)
- NO 638 (29.95%)
This measure sought to amend the city charter so that a levy of .97 mills would be added if there is not a current levy for public transportation in the city.
The question on the ballot:
| Charter Amendment – Public Transit
An Amendment to Section 6.01 of Article VI, Taxation, of the City Charter to restore the levy of 0.9789 mills for Public Transit purposes
This amendment will authorize, in any year a millage is NOT otherwise levied for county wide or regional public transit, or when needed to supplement a county wide or regional millage, as approved by City Council, a tax of 0.9789 mills solely for public transit purposes. Approval would increase the tax levy by 0.9789 mills as new additional millage in excess of the limitation imposed by law, restoring the authorized Charter millage to 20 mills, since reduced by the Headlee amendment. It is estimated that if levied, 0.9789 mills would raise approximately $281,429 when first levied in 2011.
