Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Marquette Area Public Schools Interim Superintendent William Saunders joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike today to discuss an important school funding request.
Voters in Marquette Area School District will be deciding the fate on operational millage that makes up 1/3rd of the school’s annual budget. The renewal of this operational millage will be used directly for school operations, and has been in place since 1994. It generates approximately $8.4 million.
According to Saunders, the millage request is a renewal that many other school districts get approved by voters on a year-by-year basis, but the Marquette Area Schools bring it to the voters every twenty years. The millage is now up for renewal.
