Charlotte School District wants $50 raise in property taxes for building funds

CHARLOTTE, Mich. (WLNS) – Two Mid-Michigan school districts have a similar strategy to reach one goal, to make improvements to their buildings.

Starting in Charlotte, the district is asking voters to consider the same proposal they saw on the ballot last month.

It’s a proposal that would generate upwards of $500,000 a year by raising some property taxes by about $50.

If approved school officials say, the district would have the funds to make any repairs needed for its facilities.

This includes installing newer technology and fixing parking lots.

Last month the proposal was shot down, where 68% of voters decided against the plan.
