North Central School proposals approved


For The Daily News

HERMANSVILLE – Two tax proposals – for a bond request and an operating millage renewal – were approved by voters in the North Central Area School District during Tuesday’s election.

“I appreciate the support of the voters,” said Superintendent Don Palmer following the posting of unofficial election results in Menominee County. He commended the efforts of those who participated in committee meetings, open houses, and a telephone campaign to encourage residents to get out and vote.

Tuesday’s vote of approval is a reflection of the community seeing the district’s needs and wanting to maintain the schools, he said. The elementary school is located in Hermansville. High school and middle school students attend classes in Powers.

Palmer said the bond proposal for an average of 1.92 mills will go towards the purchase of four new buses, an outdoor computerized sign, and paving of the road to the football field. Proposal One passed by a 367-266 vote.

Proposal Two on Tuesday’s ballot was a four-year renewal of the non-homestead operational millage to allow the district to continue levying 18 mills on non-homestead property such as camps. Voters approved this request 436-197.
