Tef t for the Saline Area Advisory Council SALINE — Election day is set for June 24th! Voting on a bond issue for Saline's proposed new High School will take place, from 10:00 A. M. until 8:00 P. M. in the high school gymnasium, according to the Saline Area Board of Education. With projected enrollment in mind, the Board has planned thoughtfully, has pared costs and facilities to an efficient yet adequate minimum, and has set the bond issue at $1,650,000; Voters are asked to remember their decision of three years ago when they elected to raise 7.5 mills for an elementary school. Legal bonding advisors for the local Board are confident that the old and new issue can be refinanced and combined and not exceed the original 7.5 mills on equalized valuation. This total millage, then, would include the elementary school debt plus the new high school, and has a possibility of'being less as the area valuation in- : creases. Already Saline's school area has reached the $16,250,000 mark and is destined to increase even more within the next few years as planned industrial expansion—currently in its initial stages—takes place. Also inevitable is the normal residential growth which raises the total valuation and spreads the tax burden, thus making possible a lower millage rate for the bond retirement. * As has been explained previously in these-articles, the current bond issue for the elementary school has levied a 4.5 mill- age while the original plan pass- ' ed by voters called for 7.5. Now without exceeding the 7.5 mill level, the area can be assured of the needed high school facilities to meet rapidly increasing enrollments. The present plan assumes _t 4%% interest rate also on the: Bond retirement. It is' the feel' ing of the. Board of Education that this rate be considered top. Present rates on the current issue, are lower, and—as in the past—the Board would seek the lowest rate possible. Who can vote? Any school elector in a school district whose name appears on the assessment roll "and. who is the owner in his own right of the property so assessed: Provided, that where -a husband aiid wife own property jointly, regardless of the name which appears on the assessment roll, if otherwise qualified, each is eligible to vote: Provided that he/she is a citizen of the United States, is 21 years of age or over, and has been a resident of Michigan six months and of the district 30 -days before the election. Detailed preliminary plans for the proposed high school, complete with sketches will appear in the next report to the people. To vote intelligently, residents should acquaint themselves with all_of the facts—those which have "appeared in print up to date, and* those which will be presented before the day of election—June 24th. isters. Parents . should bring the child's certificate and health record to help fill out th^ registration forms. The birth certificate must be checked before a child may be officially enrolled.
