Howell schools hosting community meeting on May 7 bond issue

Howell Public Schools has scheduled a community meeting to share information on its bond proposal that will appear on the May 7  ballot. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, 2019, in the Howell Public Schools Board of Education Room located at 411 N. Highlander Way Howell.

“This meeting will be an opportunity for our community to come and learn about the bond proposal. During the presentation, we will share the need, our plan and how, if approved, this proposal will provide the district with funding for security upgrades, infrastructure needs, redesigned learning spaces and upgrades to our performing arts and athletics facilities,” said Erin MacGregor, Howell Public Schools superintendent. “Community members will also be able to ask us any questions they have about the proposal.”

If approved, the Howell Public Schools bond proposal will provide the district with $39 million dollars to fund improvements to each of its 11 buildings. Due to the district’s expected declining debt levy, the proposal is not expected to result in a tax increase for residents. Instead, the debt levy is expected to decline from 6.3 mills to 6.2 mills.
