KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Kalamazoo Public School Board decided Thursday night that a $62 million bond will go to a public vote.

Another $11 million is earmarked for technology upgrades.

$6 million would be spent to replace the older wing of Milwood Elementary, which was built in the 1920's.

$4 million would pay for new buses.
