Special Election: Area Schools Operating Millages in Jeopardy

Posted:

Millions of dollars lost and huge budget cuts are in the future for a hand full of Mid-Michigan schools, if they can't generate enough votes Tuesday.  

In November, voters rejected the operating millage for three school districts; including Owosso Public schools who now stands to lose three million dollars every year.

The bond proposed by Ovid-Elsie Area Schools also failed in November by a vote of 1,925 (48%) to 2,128 (53%). And in the Jonesville Community, voters rejected the districts operating millage by a vote of 1,210 (49.8%) to 1,221 (50.2%).

On the ballot in East Lansing today, E.L. Public Schools are looking for $5.3 million to upgrade technology and security; and Eaton Rapids Public Schools are asking for $6.3 million for remodeling, technology, buses and playgrounds.

In Hillsdale County, voters can also vote on a wind energy and noise ordinance in Reading Township.

Polls are open from 7 A.M. to 8 P.M.
