A Bloomfield Hills School District Bond Measure
will be on the May 8, 2012
ballot in the Bloomfield Hills school district area which is in Oakland County
This measure seeks to issue a bond in the amount of $59 million in order to consolidate the schools in the district, expand one of the high school facilities and make general renovations throughout the district as needed. This would be the third time the district will ask for bonds to consolidate and renovate the district in the past 10 years. If the bond does not get approved, district officials noted that they would still consolidate the schools but a new facility would not be possible to house all the students. If the bond is approved, officials note that the local property tax would actually decrease as the school's sinking fund will go down as will a previous bond repayment.
