(CONSTANTINE) – The Constantine Board of Education has decided to hold off on bringing a zero millage proposal back to the voters in August.

During their meeting on Saturday, the Constantine School Board voted unanimously to not put the proposal in front of the voters in August. Voters in the Constantine School District on May 2 voted down a proposal to approve a no mill increase and refinancing of their bond by a vote of 463 No to 355 Yes.

If approved, the refinancing would have brought in $3.9 million. That money would have been used to address roofing and insulation projects at both Constantine Middle School and Constantine High School.

Constantine Superintendent Joseph Holloway shared with the Board what the timetable would be to bring the request back to voters in August. ...... {LISTEN}.

Holloway says he doesn’t feel comfortable with either of those options. He says Constantine School District voters have bond fatigue with the last few proposals that have been presented to them.

Holloway and the Board agreed to talk more about the failed requests and to ask the public what they think should be done and what they would support before making another appeal for assistance.
