A look at some key proposals results in Mid-Michigan

 

Many of across Mid-Michigan took to the polls Tuesday to cast their vote on issues that matter in the communities.

The unofficial results are in. Take a look at some key proposals:

Tuscola County

Voters say no to both proposals for Millington Public Schools.

One was an $11 million for technology and other school upgrades. The second was a 20-year plan to raise $2 million for a gym.

The defeat didn't surprise some residents.

"A lot of money they wanted," said Wanda Johnson, resident.

Others think the bonds should have passed and hope the district will come back to voters for another try.

"I mean, I don't have any young children in school but I do have a grandson in school. And they need everything they can get," said Kim Graves, resident.

The district has the option of going to voters again.

For Vassar Public Schools, voters said yes to raising $12 million over 25-years for security upgrades and more. The millage was turned down two times before.

"We are so happy. It's just a great relief," Vassar Schools Superintendent Dorothy Blackwell said.

The bond will be used for remodeling, building security measures, improving athletic fields, playgrounds and parking areas.

"It took a community to get together and get what needs to be done at Vassar High School," said Carson Atkins, Vassar resident. "They need the same education that I got growing up. It's time to pay it forward and I'm glad that the community realized that this time around."

Shiawassee County

Voters approved a 7-year plan for infrastructure improvements and security in Perry Schools.

Bay County

At Bay City Public Schools, voters said yes to a sinking fund millage. It’ll raise a million dollars a year for 7-years.

Genesee County

Voters overwhelmingly approve a 10-year operating millage to raise nearly $9 million for Grand Blanc Schools.
