Clawson voters approve park bond
By Robert Guttersohn firstname.lastname@example.org
Voters said yes Aug. 5 to a $3.8 million bond that will pay for park repairs throughout the city.
The issue passed with 56 percent of the 2,250 votes cast.
To pay for the 20-year bond issue, the city will levy up to 0.89 mills annually, which would cost a household with a taxable value of $50,000 about $40 extra in property taxes a year.
City officials have maintained that now is the best time to do the improvements because of the infrastructure improvements that the school district is undertaking next year.
If the city and the district tackle the repairs at the same time, it would be a cost savings to both entities.
