My Town Holland: Voters approve school funding proposals in two districts

HOLLAND, Mich.—  Two school districts in Holland will get the funding they're asking for.

Tuesday night, voters overwhelmingly approved renewing Holland Public Schools'  operating millage for three years, by a 1,624-to-242 vote. The property tax will remain at 18 mills, generating approximately $8 million for the district in its first year, ensuring the district receives its per pupil foundation allowance.

West Ottawa Public Schools will also keep its operating millage at 18 mills this year.  Voters approved the proposed renewal by a 3,800-to-926 vote.  The district's $90 million bond proposal passed by a slightly smaller margin, 3,183 votes to 1,546 votes.   The bond will help cover the cost of school building upgrades, purchasing school buses, adding a new transportation facility and adding and developing playgrounds, athletic fields and facilities.
