Local issues on ballots, including school funding

Posted: Updated:

GROSSE POINTE, Mich. (AP) -- Voters across Michigan are considering a number of local issues, including a hotly debated technology bond in the Grosse Pointe communities in suburban Detroit.

Take a county-by-county look at Michigan elections on Feb. 25, 2014.

Grosse Pointe Public Schools, which says students are hampered by aging technology, has a roughly $50 million bond on Tuesday's ballot. The money would let the district build a fiber optic network, purchase equipment, renovate infrastructure and improve security.

Critics argue that the price tag is too steep.

The 10-year measure would raise taxes by 2.28 mills in the first year. A mill is $1 per $1,000 of a property's assessed value, and Michigan assesses property at half its estimated market value. It would cost the owner of a home with a $100,000 taxable value about $228 a year.
