Burr Oak approves sinking-fund millage

Voters in Burr Oak Community Schools were in a generous mood Tuesday, as a sinking-fund millage was approved by nearly a three-to-two margin.
The 3-mill, five-year sinking fund request was supported by a vote of 116 in favor to 71 opposed.
Tuesday’s request is identical to what was on the ballot in the May 5 election, when voters defeated the measure, 111-91.
The sinking-fund millage will bring approximately $125,000 per year to the county’s smallest school district.
Superintendent Terry Conklin said funds will be appropriate for addressing smaller building remodeling projects and repair needs, Conklin added.
Other priorities include renovating restrooms, upgrading the stage area, roofing, remodeling the science lab, and improving equipment for food service and playground, Conklin said.
