Bedford school board OKs $70M project to upgrade facilities


TEMPERANCE — The Bedford Public Schools Board of Education on voted Thursday to move forward with a $70 million project to upgrade its school facilities.

The project proposal, which would be paid for through the sale of bonds, would include $18 million for a new elementary school, whose location has not yet been determined. The project would cost the average homeowner in Bedford an additional $170 in taxes annually.

The next step in the process would be to get final OK of the project from the Michigan Department of Treasury.

The board will hold a special meeting Feb. 20, five days before the filing deadline with the Monroe County clerk for the May 6 ballot, to vote on sending the measure to the electorate in May.
