Lakeshore Public Schools is asking voters to pass 2 new bonds to make schools better throughout the district. The proposals total $53-million.
The plans were laid out at a community forum Monday night. The money being asked for is split into 2 separate bonds.
The first proposal is for nearly $36-million in district-wide infrastructure and technology improvements. As well as improvements to programs at the middle and high schools.
The main purpose for the second proposal is $9-million to build a new elementary school near Baroda. And $8-million for improvements to the district's 3 existing elementary schools which will be less crowded thanks to the new school.
Voters will get to have their say on the proposals on May 7th.
A 100-plus-million dollar bond proposed in 2011 was strongly rejected by voters.If both bond proposals are passed a person owning a home worth $180-thousand would see their taxes increase by about $15 a month.
