Whitmore Lake Voters Reject Bond Issue

Aug 6, 2013

Whitmore Lake Schools voters soundly rejected a $12.3 million bond issue Tuesday.  Superintendent Kim Hart says the un-official tally wasn't close: 690 "no" votes to 310 "yes" votes.

She says the main complaint the district heard from voters was that their taxes were already too high, particularly in Northville Township and Washtenaw County.

Hart says some tough decisions will have to be made going forward, because at this point any money needed for things the district needs to repair, remodel or replace will come directly out of the classroom.

The Whitmore Lake Public School District has one issue before voters on Tuesday. 

As WEMU's David Fair reports, the district is seeking approval of a $12.3 million bond issue.
