Hearing Dec. 16 for proposed election date change

The Ann Arbor Board of Education has scheduled a public hearing on the topic of whether to change the date of the school district election from May to November in order to save costs.

The hearing will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec.16 at the Ann Arbor District Library, 4th Floor, 343 S. Fifth Ave., Ann Arbor.

The change is among many school officials are considering in order to trim the district’s budget. According to information presented to the school board at a recent budget workshop, it is estimated that the district would save $100,000 by making the change.

If the board votes to change to November elections, school district voters would elect members of the board of education on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

Any person with a disability who needs accommodation for participation in this hearing should contact Amy Osinski, Executive Secretary to the Board of Education, at 734-994-2232 at least 48 hours in advance of the hearing to request assistance.
