Burr Oak Schools millage on ballot

Burr Oak Community Schools again will ask voters to approve a 3-mill, five-year sinking fund request. The Nov. 3 request is identical to what was on the ballot in the May 5 election, when voters defeated the measure, 111-91.
The millage would bring approximately $125,000 per year for the schools for the next five years for a total of $625,000. That’s up from $105,000 per year at the time of the May 5 election, due to the fact that property values have risen, said Superintendent Terry Conklin, superintendent of Burr Oak Community Schools.
If approved, funds would 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.
