Sinking Fund Info

The Hemlock Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution encouraging the community to become informed and vote yes for the sinking fund proposal on March 10th. The district has made progress over the last several years with fundraising efforts from parents, staff, and community members but foundations and grants will not pay for roofs. Recently, the district has seen the completion of the elementary playgrounds, lightning at the soccer complex, and is ready to break ground with the STEM Center due to fundraising efforts.

Superintendent Killingbeck said, “The school’s annual operating budget is 80+% personnel and when you add turning on the lights, heating the buildings, transportation, and teaching materials there simply is not the dollars to keep leaks away from students without asking the community for help.”

Our Board of Education, made up of community members themselves, understands the dynamics of our community and reduced the current proposal to 1 mill, (which is a 33% reduction from previous ballot initiatives).

If voters approve, the projected Board of Education plan is to utilize these dollars to address roofs, safety/security, instructional technology, and other needed repairs and updates. Although the ballot language includes the word “construct” the intent is to replace existing roofs, windows, and HVAC, which is beyond a simple repair.

The ballot proposal is important to the future of Hemlock Public School District and the community. The district is set to host a series of meetings to help inform voters.Some people, wonder what is a sinking fund? It sounds like a funny name for something that is used to help a school district maintain and enhance facilities and technology. Under Michigan law, a school may collect taxes for a "sinking fund" that can be used for repairs, renovations, and technology (as well as other construction).

How will this impact Hemlock Public School District? If approved, these funds will help the district maintain our facilities inside and out with things like:

  • Safety-addressing gaps in our security system, paving the service drive, and more.
  • Technology-addressing instructional tools that have reached their end of useful life.
  • Efficiency-replacing thing like the single pane windows from 1959 at the high school.
  • Maintenance-with items like - roofs, boilers, HVAC, equipment, etc.

Sinking funds are fairly common throughout the State of Michigan. Freeland, Swan Valley, Saginaw Township, Birch Run, Bridgeport, and Frankenmuth all have sinking funds.
