HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - An electronic billboard near a school bus garage is expected to bring in $690,000 over 20 years for a Michigan school district.
Howell Public Schools' Board of Education this week unanimously approved a long-term lease agreement allowing CBS Outdoor to use school property for the billboard along M-59.
According to published reports the billboard about 25 miles southeast of Lansing is expected to carry eight rotating messages at a time, and the school district will use one for its own messages.
The billboard, which school officials say is consistent with the property's zoning, is expected to be 10 feet by 36 feet. The planned site is behind Howell High School's campus. Several other billboards already are in place along the stretch of roadway.
