Ballot for the Millage Election
Voters saw the following language on their ballots. The title and first eleven lines of text deal only with mental health and public safety services. A majority of the Ann Arbor City Council use the phrase "24% shall be allocated to" in the twelfth line as their justification for their right to spend the funds as they please -- and specifically for climate change actions if they choose to do so. Climate change actions are not mentioned as uses of the funds (see the events of July 10 and 12 for context).
