Gwinn Area Community Schools 'sinking fund' proposal to be on August 6 ballot

GWINN, Mich. (WLUC) - The millage proposal for the Gwinn Area Community Schools (GACS) “sinking fund” will be back on the ballot on August 6.

This decision came out of a special meeting of the GACS school board meeting last night, after the proposal failed on May 7.

District officials say the fund is needed to replace things like classroom plumbing, floors, and ventilation.

They add that the general fund cannot sustain these repairs, which is why the sinking fund is needed.

"A vibrant school district lends itself to a vibrant community. So, we're looking for the community to support the schools, so the schools can support the community,” said GACS Superintendent, Sandy Petrovich.

The millage proposal will remain the same on the August ballot, with the district asking for 1.75 mills for a period of 10 years.
