Recreation, sinking fund renewals on ballot

Northview — District voters will be asked on May 2 to approve two no-tax-increase millage renewals. 

The first proposal is for a 20-year renewal of a 0.6973 recreational millage for public and building playgrounds. The millage helps fund the Northview Community Fitness and Aquatic Center, supports the maintenance of athletic fields and allows district families to participate at no cost in middle and high school athletics or band.

The second proposal is for a 10-year renewal of the district’s 1.1472-mill building and site sinking fund. That is a savings account into which the district can deposit voter-approved local millage revenue to pay cash for technology, and for infrastructure projects and repairs, rather than incur debt or interest. Those funds cannot be used for salaries and benefits.
