PAW PAW, Mich. — The Paw Paw Public Schools Board of Education is placing a $53.64 million bond proposal on the August election ballot to fund district-wide facility upgrades.
If approved by voters, the bond proposal would increase the district’s existing debt millage rate by 1.0 mill, according to a news release Tuesday.
For a home with a $50,000 taxable value – $100,000 or more of market value – the homeowner would see about $4.17 per month more in their property taxes.
“This bond issue would allow us to make updates to spaces across the district so we can create modern learning environments and increase space efficiencies for PPPS students,” Superintendent Rick Reo said.
Along with district-wide improvements to every facility, district officials want to add a multipurpose space to the high school, build a new stadium at the high school and build a new early childhood center.
