A Library is Not a City

A July 22, 2012 article about the Ann Arbor District Library board’s decision to place a $65 million bond proposal on the Nov. 6 ballot incorrectly characterized constraints on the ballot language for library bond proposals. The article stated that the requirements for the ballot language are laid out in the  Michigan Home Rule City Act. While the district library is a formidable institution, it is not a city. In fact, district libraries in Michigan are governed by the District Library Financing Act (Act 265 of 1988). We note The Chronicle’s error here, and have corrected the original article to include the template that libraries must use for their ballot language.
