Hastings schools to ask approval of 0.7 mill bond in May 2019.

At its December 17 meeting The Hastings Area School System Board of Education approved a bond proposal of 0.7 mills for the May election, which would be primarily used to replace and repair the roofs of all six school buildings, according to Superintendent Carrie Duits. The 0.7 mills, for 11 years, eight months, would result in $9.9 million.

 

They would also address windows and doors, carpeting, lockers bathrooms, locker rooms and the high school cafeteria, she said.  “The mills are now decreasing each year and with this new bond proposal, the bond millage will still decrease from 8.15 mills in 2017 to 7.6 mills in 2019, a benefit for our taxpayers, Duits said.

 

A request for 0.85 mills for 15 years for $11.1 million in the 2018 August primary election failed 2,562 to 2,343. Duits said after the failure, “we paid attention to what the people said, sharpened our pencils, and took buses, technology, tennis courts, track, bleachers and press box out of this proposal.”
