A Oakridge School District Bond Measure was on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the Oakridge school district area, which is in both Muskegon and Newaygo Counties.

This measure was approved

  • YES 1,339 (51.2%)Approveda
  • NO 1,132 (48.8%)

This measure sought to create a bond in the amount of $8.64 million in order to equip and erect a new middle school building as well as improving and renovating existing school facilities.[1] Since this was approved it will just extend the current tax rate another twelve years and not increase it. The school is desperate to get rid of portable classrooms, new facilities would eliminate them; new school buses would also be built with the bond money. The school district felt that these are essential needs for the school and that in light of the economic times this is not too much to ask of residents.[2]
