MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich.—Technology and safety upgrades are coming to the Muskegon Area Intermediate School District.
Voters narrowly approved a millage funding the upgrades during a special election Feb. 25. The unofficial results from the election show 6,285 voters supported the measure while 6,099 voted against it.
The 10-year millage is expected to cost the owner of a home with a taxable value of $50,000 approximately $50 each year. Superintendent Dave Sipka says the millage will generate approximately $161 per pupil which will be invested based on the list of priorities each of the 11 MAISD school districts created.
Superintendents of all 11 districts have agreed to compile an accountability report, to show where the millage funds are going. The first report will be released by Feb. 25, 2015.
