The council of defendant city adopted a resolution whereby the city charter was to be amended to authorize a limitation of I% per annum on property taxes, an excise tax of 1% per annum on salaries, commisions and profits of both nonresidents and residents, and disposition of the monies received by the income tax. The proposed charter revision was approved by the qualified electors by a margin slightly less than two to one. The plaintiffs, electors and residents of the city, obtained an injunction against enforcement of the charter amendment. On appeal, held, affirmed. The charter revision was ineffectual since three distinct propositions were submitted to the electors in the form of one question, contrary to a Michigan statute. House v. City of Saginaw, 334 Mich. 241, 54 N.W. (2d) 314 (1952).
