District to form Bond Committee

Ypsilanti, MI – The next step in presenting a bond issue to Ypsilanti school district voters is to set up a bond issue commitee.
School Superintendent James Hawkins has asked school board members to submit names of people they think should serve on the committee.
The earliest voters would be asked to consider a bond issue would probably be August of next year, depending on what the city does in terms of a city income tax vote.
The bond issue would likely be in the range of 30 to 35 million dollars, and would not result in a tax increase for district residents.
