Voters In Kalamazoo, Vicksburg and Mattawan Gobles Three Rivers, Cassololis and White Pigeon Approve School Issue


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --  Voters in the Kalamazoo School district  gave overwhelming approval to a 62-million dollar bond issue for school improvement and maintenance projects.  Supt. Michael Rice says it’s not just an approval of money, it’s a morale booster. It will mean better technology and computers in classroom, renovated schools, and a second gym at Kalamazoo Central high.  Dr. Rice says it also guarantees the roof won’t leak and the furnaces will come on when it gets cold.  It passed ..5044 to 2219.

Routine operating millage questions were also approved in the Vicksburg and Mattawan school districts, as well as in Gobles, Three Rivers, Cassopolis and White Pigeon.    

   Voters in the Delton Kellogg School District approved two bond issues for school maintenance and improvement projects, and voters in Marcellus defeated a similar request for money.
