Ann Arbor Public Schools will continue to have a dedicated source of funding for facility maintenance and upgrades.
Voters approved a five year continuation of the sinking fund millage yesterday. The one-mill tax was approved by over 80 percent of voters.
School Board Member Glenn Nelson says the sinking fund is an important piece of the overall budget. He says without the millage the shape of schools would have been reduced and instruction would have suffered as well. Nelson says the community has once again invested in education and the area's future. He says the sinking fund millage is an education tax that completely remains in the district.
