Millage increase passes

Centreville Public Schools will see $12.8 million worth of improvements over the next decade, as its voters on Tuesday approved a 2.95-mill increase request.

The vote was 351 in favor to 226 opposed. As a result, the district will start improvements at its elementary and jr./sr. high buildings next year as part of a three-phase plan that will also see the purchase of new buses and a full technology upgrade.

Board of education president Dave Peterson said the public’s endorsement of the request is appreciated and the district will make good use of the money to repair and replace an aging infrastructure in its two buildings.
