Voters in the Buchanan school district will be deciding on a bond proposal next Tuesday. Unlike the last two proposals, which were defeated, this one will not raise any taxes. School officials say they want to continue an existing debt millage, which expires this year, for another 20 years to pay for nearly $15 million in improvements at the schools. Those include renovating the middle school from the open classroom design of the 1970s to walled classrooms. A new gym would be built if voters approve the bond, and add classrooms at Ottawa Elementary School. Security improvements would be made to all schools in the district. The bond proposals that failed in recent years sought tax hikes.
