Budget and upgrades to top Tuesday's Mishawaka school meeting

Posted:

The School City of Mishawaka will be having another meeting Tuesday night to discuss changes to the budget and the capital projects fund plan.

For months the school district has been talking about a series of upgrades that would cost taxpayers $28 million dollars in the form of a bond. The upgrades would include security improvements, furnace and air conditionings systems and getting parking lots repaved, amongst other things.

In the past people on both sides of the issue have spoken out at meetings.

"The bond referendum is to fix buildings, fix technology, and fix safety for our children that attend these schools and that is priority," said Mishawaka parent Michael Waddling on August 13.

That same night, concerned Mishawaka taxpayer Mike Wojtysiak spoke out.

"How are we going to pay for the computer people?," he asked "I guess we'll put that in the general fund. That's what we're going to do. What falls out the other end? Teachers.  That's as simple as it gets."

If you want to air your concerns or learn more about the proposal you can show up at the district's administration building, located at 1402 S. Main Street. That meeting starts at 7 p.m.
