Clawson School Board Considering Tax Hike Proposal

CLAWSON (WWJ) This is not a good time to be thinking about a tax hike or millage increase.

But the Clawson School Board may not have any other options.

The plan is to replace old computers in the district. Many of the computers that are still being used by students are ten years old.

There are two options under consideration: one costing about 3.3 million dollars and the second option costing about 4-million dollars.

The proposals would cost between 58-73 dollars in taxes per year, for about ten years.

The plan will be presented to the Clawson Board of Education on February 14. The issue could go before voters on May 3.
