9/12/18 -  Howell Public Schools has scheduled two community meetings to share information on its Securing Our Future Sinking Fund Millage proposal that will appear on Tuesday, November 6 ballot. The meetings are set for Tuesday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, October 9 at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held in the Howell Public Schools Board of Education Room located at 411 N. Highlander Way Howell.

“These meetings are an opportunity for our community to come and learn about the Securing Our Future Sinking Fund proposal. During the presentation, we will share the need, our plan and how this proposal will provide the district with funding for security upgrades and major building repairs with no expected tax rate increase,” said Erin MacGregor, Howell Public Schools superintendent. “Community members will also be able to ask us any questions they have about the proposal.”

If passed, the Howell Public Schools Securing Our Future Sinking Fund Millage will provide the district with approximately 1.3 million dollars annually for the next ten years to fund security upgrades and perform major repair projects throughout the district. Due to the district’s expected declining debt levy, this .5 mill proposal is not expected to result in a tax increase for residents. Instead, it would freeze the current combined sinking fund and debt levy at 6.30 mills for the first year. After the first year, the total levy is expected to begin to decline with the district’s debt being paid off by 2029.
