  • 30. Sample Ballot City General Election Tuesday, November 5, 2013 Oakland County, Michigan City of Royal Oak, Precinct NONPARTISAN SECTION PROPOSAL SECTION CITY CITY Proposal A Charter Amendment Proposal 3 2013 Human Rights Ordinance Currently, Chapter 3, Section 15 and Chapter Ten, Section 1, of the City Charter requires the City Commission to appoint the City Assessor. And, Chapter Three, Section 15 of the City Charter also requires the City Commission to appoint the City Treasurer. The proposed amendment, if adopted, would allow the City Manager to appoint the City Treasurer and City Assessor. MAYOR Vote for not more than 1 Jim Ellison COMMISSIONER Vote for not more than 3 Sharlan Douglas An ordinance to amend the Code of the City of Royal Oak to prohibit discrimination based upon actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, height, weight, condition of pregnancy, marital status, physical or mental limitation, source of income, family responsibilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status, and to provide penalties for the violation thereof. Should this proposal be adopted? Diane K. Hargan For the Ordinance YES Jeremy T. Mahrle Against the Ordinance NO David Poulton Charter Amendment "Proposal 1" LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT Currently, the City Charter at Chapter Three, Section 3, restricts eligibility for Mayor or Commissioner to persons who first has attained the age of 25 at the time of election. The proposed amendment, if adopted, would allow anyone to serve as Mayor or Commissioner who has attained the age of 21 at the time of election and who is otherwise eligible. Shall the proposal be adopted? YES NO Charter Amendment "Proposal 2" Currently, the City Charter at Chapter Three, Section 3, restricts eligibility for Mayor or Commissioner to persons who are freeholders of the city (real estate property owners). Due to various court rulings holding that freeholder eligibility requirements for elective office violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Michigan and Federal constitutions this freeholder eligibility clause is currently unenforceable. The proposed amendment, if adopted, would eliminate this requirement in the City Charter at Chapter Three, Section 3, for Mayor and Commissioner. Should this proposal be adopted? YES SCHOOL DISTRICT OF THE CITY OF ROYAL OAK OPERATING MILLAGE RENEWAL PROPOSAL This proposal, if approved by the electors, will allow the School District of the City of Royal Oak to continue to levy the number of operating mills required for the School District to receive revenues at the full per pupil foundation allowance permitted by the State of Michigan. Shall the limitation on the total amount of taxes which may be assessed against all property, except principal residence and other property exempted by law, situated within the School District of the City of Royal Oak, County of Oakland, State of Michigan, be increased as provided in the Michigan Constitution, in the amount of 18 mills ($18.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), and against all principal residences and other property not exempted by law, by 3.4 mills ($3.40 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), both millages to be for a period of seven (7) years, from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2021, inclusive with the above 18 mills and the above 3.40 mills (which is a reduction from the 3.5030 mills previously authorized by the electors) being a renewal of millage which would otherwise expire on December 31, 2013? These operating millages if approved and levied, would provide estimated revenues to the School District of Eighteen Million Eight Hundred Thousand ($18,800,000) Dollars during the 2014 calendar year, to be used for general operating purposes. NO Should this proposal be adopted? YES NO Image from: http://www.ci.royal-oak.mi.us/portal/webfm_send/2697
