Alpena Public Schools offer bond proposal to voters

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — Alpena public schools has decided to go ahead with their plan to ask voters to approve a multimillion-dollar bond proposal. It involves the sale of $33.9 million in bonds for improvements in the schools.Superintendent Dr. John VanWagoner says the money would go towards repairing roofs and boilers, as well as improving security. “We have boilers and roofs that are failing. We’ve had multiple instances with some of the cold weather already where the boilers wouldn’t work properly,” he said. “Our electrical system is so old that it won’t open air dampers like they’re supposed to.”The board is hoping to also increase the security of their schools by upgrading their entrances. Dr. VanWagoner says people have been known to walk into the building without checking in at the front office. He added that one of their main goals is to keep their students comfortable. “We’re really trying to concentrate on real basics, on keeping our kids safe, warm, and dry. So the board made the decision tonight to go after that no mil increase.”Voters will have the chance to vote for or against the bond proposal in March.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alpena Public SchoolsContinue ReadingPrevious MSP vehicles outfitted with updated cameras, better sounds and visualsNext American Dental Association announces support for banning certain vaping productslast_img read more
