Constantine to vote on mills
August 15, 2013 by Administrator
Voters in the Constantine Public Schools district will have two ballot measures before them later this year.
A request to renew 18 mills for general operations and a bond resolution for major improvements at Constantine Middle School will be decided in November, following action during the district’s board of education meeting this week.
Superintendent Chuck Frisbie said he stressed to board members and the public that the bond resolutions related to the proposed middle school work would not increase the district’s current millage rate.
He said the district has refinanced some of its debt and, as a result, has about $6.6 million to apply toward the proposed project. The middle school has not received any significant work in its 47-year history, Frisbie said, adding the cost of a new school would be in excess of $12 million.
