Glen Oaks agrees to millage proposal

Glen Oaks Community College will go to voters with a millage request in November.

The college’s board of trustees last week agreed to move forward with a proposal for the five-year, half-mill request.

The vote follows months of planning and community input.

If approved, the millage would address situations including: renovating outdated technology laboratories and reconfiguring spaces to support workforce training in areas such as automotive, welding, manufacturing, gaming and coding, computer-aided design, electrical technology and graphic design; improving accessibility for students, faculty, staff and visitors with disabilities; addressing aging infrastructure, including outdated fixtures and plumbing, deteriorated flooring, walls and ceilings; improving energy efficiency by replacing 50-year-old, single-pane windows, replacing seals on older, thermal-pane windows, insulating exterior walls and repairing panel walls.
