Pellston Schools Looks to Renew Sinking Fund with Lower Taxes this May

The sinking fund for Pellston Schools has been in place since 2020 and has been responsible for many large projects. 

One of their most prized accomplishments from the current sinking fund was installing a rubberized track and adding a concession stand for their athletic field.

They also replaced a portion of the roof on the middle and high school, improved overall security with more cameras and a key card system, and replaced carpet in the whole elementary building. Pellston Elementary

Renewing the millage on May 3 would reduce the cost for taxpayers who would be paying $1.50 for every $1,000 of taxable value on one’s home. With the current millage, they’re paying $2 for every $1,000 of taxable value.  

Improvements in the district would still continue, including giving students the tools they need to succeed.

“We plan to continue to keep technology at the forefront for our students,” said Stephen Seelye, superintendent of Pellston Schools. “We’ve learned a lot throughout the pandemic about how students learn and want to make sure they have the best in their hands.” 

The renewed sinking fund would run for five years starting in 2023 and would generate $522,201 per year.
