Polls open Tuesday morning for Election Day
WEST MICHIGAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The polls open Tuesday morning as voters decide on a number of important issues across West Michigan.
It's a very big day for many local school districts. Voters will go to the polls to answer their bond and millage requests.
Most are asking for millage renewals. Those will not raise your taxes higher than they are now.
But a few are asking voters to pay more.
Kalamazoo Public Schools is one of those districts. They say they need to make some big improvements with a price-tag of 62-million dollars.
Most of that money would go to replacing things like roofs, boilers, sidewalks and buses.
Other projects include replacing a portion of Milwood Elementary and building a second gym at Kalamazoo Central.
Grandville Public Schools has the biggest request on the ballot, asking for more than 75-million dollars for improvements throughout the district.
Wyoming Schools is asking voters to approve a 53-million dollar bond proposal.
The Delton-Kellogg District has two proposals on the ballot totaling more than 14-million dollars.
Also on the ballot Tuesday is a millage renewal for the Kalamazoo County Transportation Authority. This would allow them to continue public transportation services in the county by bringing in more than three million dollars.
They say they provided more than 130,000 rides for residents last year.
