PARK TWP., MI (WHTC) - There will be a ballot question in the West Ottawa School District this spring.
Voters will be asked on May 6 to approve a 90 million-dollar bond proposal for infrastructure renovations and program upgrades. The Board of Education last night unanimously approved a recommendation of a special committee, made up of parents and community members, to put the issue on the ballot. If approved, the current millage rate of 7.75 mills would be extended for up to another 10 years, but district officials say that the tax levy would not increase. A new performing arts center and on-campus football stadium for West Ottawa High are not included among the projects that would be funded by this bond proposal.
