Shall the Charter Township of Oxford, consistent with Article IX, Sec. 6 of the Michigan Constitution, be authorized to levy a new millage up to .25 mills ($.25 per $1,000.00) on the taxable value of property located in the Charter Township of Oxford for a period of 5 years from 2014 2018 both inclusive, which will raise in the first year of such levy an estimated revenue of $172,000 which shall be disbursed to the North Oakland Transportation Authority (and, of which, a portion will be disbursed to the Village of Oxford Downtown Development Authority) for the purpose of the North Oakland Transportation Authority supplementing the existing capital and operating expenses of the North Oakland Transportation Authority due to the loss of state, federal and other grants.

BOND PROPOSAL

Shall the Charter Township of Oxford, County of Oakland, Michigan, borrow the sum of not to exceed $20,000,000 and issue its general obligation unlimited tax bonds, therefore, payable in not to exceed twenty-five (25) years from date of issuance, for the purpose of paying all or part of the costs of constructing, furnishing and equipping the Oxford Township Community Center, together with related site improvements? The estimated millage to be levied in 2014 is 1.60 mills ($1.60 per $1,000 of taxable value) and the estimated simple average annual millage rate required to retire the bonds is 1.52 mills ($1.52 per $1,000 of taxable value).
