Two Lakeville School District Bond Measures were on the February 28, 2012 ballot in the Lakeville school district area which is in Genesee County.

Both measures were defeated

The first measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $7.5 million in order to pay for remodeling, equipping, updating security and renovate athletic fields in the district.

  • YES 1,282 (46.74%)
  • NO 1,461 (53.26%)Defeatedd

The second measure sought to issue a bond in the amount of $4.1 million in order to pay for a new auditorium and remodel the site at the district high school.[1]

  • YES 1,028 (37.72%)
  • NO 1,697 (62.28%)Defeatedd[2]

If these measures had been approved, the school district would have also received a loan from the state at a rate of $5 million which would have helped pay for the construction costs. A levy of 1.55 mills would also have been added to pay off both bonds. A similar measure was also proposed in May but was defeated, the previous question was just one total bond where as now the two projects have been separated into two issues. School officials had hoped that the lower rate would encourage residents to vote in favor of these measures.[3]

School officials also hoped that by splitting the bond into two parts would at least have allowed for one of the projects to get approved if not both.[4]
