School millage request passes in Mendon

Mendon Community Schools’ request to renew 18 non-homestead operating mills was endorsed by more than two-thirds of the voters who participated in Tuesday’s election.
The unofficial total shows 339 votes in support and 149 opposed.
At stake was more than $900,000 in annual funding, a substantial portion of the district’s $5.3 million budget.
Board of education president Regina Schinker said the result provided her and fellow board members “a huge relief.”
Schinker said the board will continue to closely guard the district’s finances and be responsible with those funds.
The funding source will be in place for 10 years.
The non-homestead tax is levied on commercial/industrial property and second homes. It is not levied on a family’s primary residence; principal residence properties are exempt from the tax.
