Regional school millage fails

From AAPSNews Service

A Washtenaw County Intermediate School District regional school millage
proposal failed Tuesday, with about 57 percent of ballots cast against
and 43 percent voting for the 2-mill measure, according to unofficial
vote totals reported by the Washtenaw County clerk.

The measure passed within the precincts covering The Ann Arbor Public
, but out-county areas largely voted against it. Some 22
percent of registered voters cast ballots, according to the clerk.

Voters considered the five-year property tax for the county’s 10 public school districts that was put on the ballot by the WISD at the request of local boards of education.

It would have raised $30 million countywide in each of the five years and about $11.2 million for The Ann Arbor Public Schools.
