Milford school officials consider bond issue

Milford Schools officials are hoping to clear the air concerning a new bond issue attempt, which is intended to maintain current taxation rate with homeowners in the district. Two special meeting dates have been set by the board to discuss the bond issue with the public. Those meetings will be held at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 7 and at 11 a.m. Aug. 10.

The new bond issue, should the district decide to pursue it, will be designed to supplement a current bond issue, will not, in effect, raise the millage currently assessed to property owners in the district. Instead, the new bond issue would keep the bond set at the same millage currently adopted by the district.

“This has been pared down,” said Valerie Miller, speaking for Milford Schools. “The idea is, in the end, they will still be collecting 4.1 mills, but some would be new millage and some would be the dropped-off millage.”
