Information on 2016 Building and Site Sinking Fund Ballot Proposal Now Available

On August 2, voters in the Lake Orion School District will be asked to consider a building and site sinking fund ballot proposal. A dedicated source of funding is needed for long-term facility repairs, renovations and replacement projects. This work will help provide the district’s 7,600 students, staff members and community with safe and functional educational facilities.  The proposed 2 mill sinking fund would generate approximately $3.5 million annually for ten years.  About one-third of the State's public school districts currently have a sinking fund in place to address their facility needs, including 12 of 28 districts in Oakland County.  CLICK HERE for detailed information on the ballot proposal and what the sinking fund would help address the district's facility needs.
