ISD considers proposing millage request

The St. Joseph County Intermediate School District appears likely to propose a millage request later this year.
An update on the proposed Career Technical Education millage update was presented Monday by Tommy Cameron, ISD director of career and technical education.
Cameron said he is following a timetable that will see the request before county voters in November.
First, however, school districts in the county must approve moving forward with the proposal. Local boards of education this month and in June will learn about the plan and each will vote on whether to put the issue on the November ballot.
The proposal is for 2.70 mills for 15 years and would generate about $5.7 million per year. If approved, the millage would generate funds for the development and subsequent operation of a career center.
According to Cameron, the owner of a house with a value of $50,000 would pay about $5.30 per month in additional taxes if the proposal is approved.
