Pontiac School District Ballot Proposal for May 5, 2015
Pontiac School District (PSD) has a Millage Proposal on the ballot for May 5th. In June, debt millage for a bond issue of 3.87 mills will no longer be levied. The PSD is requesting taxpayers to approve a sinking fund millage of 2.87 mills to replace it for 5 years. The requested sinking fund millage on the May 5th ballot is proposed for 5 years.
If the proposal passes and the new millage is approved by PSD voters, the net change to taxpayers in the PSD will be minus one (-1) mill for 5 years, and another 2.87 mills would be scheduled to drop off in 2020.
If the sinking fund millage request fails, PSD officials state that many school buildings will be uninhabitable due to lack of heating, leaky roofs and other deteriorating conditions. The millage, a Building Sinking Fund, will be dedicated for construction or repair of school buildings and not for general operating purposes. Note: Only registered voters in the Pontiac School District will be eligible to vote on this issue.
THERE IS A SPECIAL JOINT MEETING OF THE BROWNFIELD REDEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY AND THE PLANNING COMMISSION on May 12th at 7:00 pm in the Public Safety Building at 1899 N. Squirrel to discuss an advisement of planned investigation to delineate the extent of methane gas recently identified by a third party consultant at the property located at the southeast corner of Dutton Road and Bald Mountain Road. THERE WILL NOT BE A REGULAR PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING ON THIS DATE.
