BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, Michigan — Some in Buena Vista Township wants Saginaw schools to pay the debt of the dissolved Buena Vista School District.
Residents of Saginaw County's Buena Vista Township owe close to $1 million total to repay the state for a voter approved bond and general debt. Voters in the district, however, decided in November against renewing a millage to pay off debt.
A 18-mill, non-homestead renewal in the former Buena Vista School District had been requested.
The Saginaw News reports (http://bit.ly/1DM4Frw ) Chris Frank, chief financial officer with the Saginaw Intermediate School District, says the state loan would default if voters turn down a tax in May or August.
State officials closed the Saginaw County district in 2013 after years of financial and academic troubles. Students now attend schools in neighboring districts.
