From The Livingston Community News: Pinckney (Mich.) Community Schools officials are moving ahead with a plan to put a bond refinancing proposal on the Nov. 3 election ballot. The board has proposed a $59.3 million bond issue for facility maintenance and upgrades and additional technology for all schools. Approval from the state is necessary before the issue can be placed on the ballot. The current plan is less than the nearly $68 million plan opposed by the board in January. Under the original plan, the 57-year-old Pinckney Elementary building would have been replaced by a new building at the same site at a cost of $12 million, or major upgrades would have been made to the existing building for about $7.3 million. The current proposal reduces renovations to about $2.6 million.
