Operating-millage proposal passes

Voters in the Constantine Public Schools District Tuesday said “yes” to an operating-millage proposal to collect a full 18 mills from non-homestead property owners.

In addition, a second request to collect more than $6.5 million for improvements at its middle school also received community endorsement.

The first measure, which passed, 662 to 432, will allow the district to collect the full amount of its 18 mills levied on commercial and non-homestead properties. The 18 mills amount to $1.5 million annually.

Meanwhile, Constantine Middle School is in store for major improvements and upgrades, thanks to the request that was approved, 674 to 419.

Superintendent Chuck Frisbie said district officials will meet soon with architects and engineers to go over a timeline for the work at the middle school.
