Sinking Fund/Bond Proposal Information
We are dedicated to keeping the condition of our buildings and grounds in top shape. Doing that can be costly and every dollar we spend on capital up-keep counts.
We know how important our accountability of that spending is to the Eaton Rapids community. We hope you’ll find here all the information you need about what we’re doing, how much we’re spending and where the money is coming from. After all, these are your schools and we are using your tax dollars to do the work.
We Are ER!
This year Eaton Rapids Public Schools will be asking for your support renewing our current Sinking Fund millage with a millage that will extend the current .997 -mill levy from 2021 to 2025 and provide for broader uses of the proceeds, including paving or resurfacing of our parking lots, fire alarms and energy efficient upgrades including boiler replacement, LED conversion, final completion of the roofs and improvement of the building exteriors.
The current levy expires on Dec. 31, 2020. The .997 -mill five-year request is a CONTINUATION of the existing Sinking Fund millage and would NOT result in an increase over the current millage rate and would NOT increase taxes.
