Ypsilanti Community School Board Approves Summer Tax Collection

The Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education Monday night approved collecting school taxes in the summer rather than in the winter.

Board President David Bates says summer tax collection is nothing new for district residents. The Ypsilanti and Willow Run districts had been collecting taxes in the summer prior to the consolidation.

Bates says summer tax collection means the district has to borrow less from the state while awaiting state aid payments, which in turn saves taxpayers money because the district is paying less in interest on money borrowed.
