Voters to consider bond proposal Aug. 3rd for Hastings Area Schools

Voters in the Hastings Area School district will vote on Tuesday, August 3rd on a bond proposal request for $21.9 million dollars that if approved, would result in a net decrease of 0.1 mills from the current rate.

 

The current millage is set to drop by 0.9 mills this year, while the new bond proposal is for 0.8 mills for a term of 18-and-a-half years. This one bond would be sold in two series to save interest costs and to allow spreading out the purchase of buses and technology.

 

District wide, the money if approved will be used for student equipment and furnishings, replacement of 3 or 4 buses that date back to 1997, student technology, security cameras and other security measures, mechanical, electrical, and other energy upgrades to save costs, and air purification systems.

 

Hastings High School, the Middle School, Star Elementary, Northeastern, Southeastern, and Central Elementary each have a list of specific building needs including things like roof replacement at the high school, replacing old single-paned windows, asbestos removal, remodeling bathrooms, upgrades to LED lighting, air purification systems and more.

 

If approved by voters on August 3rd, work would begin this coming school year and be completed by 2024.
