School board considers cost to pursue millage request

Members of the Three Rivers Community Schools Board of Education may have to do some additional budgeting if one or a pair of election-related matters winds up before voters early next year.
Superintendent Jean Logan during Monday’s board meeting said if the board decides to pursue a millage request in March, the special election will cost the district about $2,000.
The board in May sought a 1.95-mill sinking-fund request for a variety of building improvements, but the issue failed by more than a two-thirds margin. A decision about whether to return to voters for a similar request has not yet been decided by the seven-member board.
Meanwhile, Logan said she consulted with county clerk Lindsay Oswald regarding a potential recall vote in May. Logan said Oswald indicated the district would have to pay the estimated $14,000 cost to stage the event.
