Mesick Consolidated Schools Hosts Community Forum For Bond Proposal

Mesick Consolidated Schools, working to get the word out about a bond proposal voters will decide in May.

They held another community forum to go over a big bond proposal.

They’re asking for 5.5 mills, if your home has a taxable value of $100,000 dollars you would pay $200 a year.

The money would pay for more than $14 million in upgrades, including tearing down the current elementary school, which the district says has major structural issues.

It would add a wing to the high school, creating a K-12 building.

Some parents are worried about the safety of their children while other community members are worried about the cost.

"I feel like this is a good investment for our community and the students and most importantly, for the safety of the children," said Amanda Hall.

"That’s a lot of money, you’re gonna be putting in what millions, to even only build a wing," said Tammy Flynn.

The district will host another community forum later this month, before the May 2 vote.
