Mesick Consolidated Schools Asking for Millage Increase for Improvements

Mesick Consolidated Schools is asking for more money from taxpayers in this month’s election for some improvements.

The bond proposal asks for 4.7 mills over 30 years.

If approved, the money would go toward safety, security and technology upgrades for the students

Superintendent Scott Akom says the improvements are desperately needed.

“The proposal will be adding on to our high school building where we will move our kindergarten through 5 grade up.  Move them up off of 115 and into this building.  We are also looking to right size the district.  In right sizing the district we have a lot of space that we are not using and we want to make it a more efficient space for our students,” Akom said.

Voters head to the polls May 8.
