Election Date:

Kalamazoo, MI

Type: Property Tax

Outcome: Win

Results: Approved, 63%-37%

Renewal of a 0.6 mill levy to support Metro Transit operations from 2013 to 2015. It is expected to generate about $1,024,425 annually. The levy was first approved in 1986 and has been successfully renewed each time it has gone back on the ballot.

A countywide measure is expected next year.

This measure was complicated by an error in the ballot language stating that the levy is "new" when it is in fact a renewal.
