Inland Lakes Schools Proposing $29.5 Million School Bond

Tuesday is Election Day, and several items are on the ballot across northern Michigan.

Many school districts are hoping to pass school bonds.

Inland Lakes School district in Cheboygan County asks for a $29.5 million bond.

If passed, some of the money would buy new chrome books and projectors, update security systems, and renovate the high school industrial tech wing.

The superintendent says teaching students trades while they’re in school helps the community in the long run.

“It creates opportunities for kids, especially up here in Northern Michigan in the Indian River Area. With the power sports, they can work on boat motors, snowmobile engines, anything thing like that. The businesses in the town in the area are really hurting for those skilled trades,” said Brad Jacobs, Inland Lakes Schools Superintendent.

The new bond is the same as the current 2.41 mills.

Your taxes would not increase unless your property value has gone up.
