My Town Comstock Park: Schools look to voters to keep 'Sinking Fund' alive

COMSTOCK PARK, Mich.—With February elections over, the focus now for many school districts is May.

On Tuesday, May 6, Comstock Park Public Schools will ask voters to renew the district’s current “Sinking Fund” for another ten years.  The Sinking Fund can only be used for expenses on buildings, facilities and grounds.    Without the Sinking Fund, these annual maintenance costs would come from the district’s General Fund, which normally covers student programs, staff and services.

The Sinking Fund has previously helped cover roofs, parking lots, sidewalks, windows, doors, lockers, carpet, landscaping upkeep, gym floor refinishing and athletic field improvements.
