Polls will remain open until 8 p.m. tonight as Clawson Public Schools voters decide a $9.9 million bond issue to finance various remodeling and improvement projects at district facilities.
District officials say that approving the bond issue won’t increase the tax rate and the overall tax rate is expected to decrease in 2017 as previously approved bonds are retired.
The list of projects that will be completed if the bond issue is approved includes improvements at:
Clawson High School ( $2,257,132 in projects)
Clawson Middle School ($1,954,334 in projects)
Baker Preschool ( $1,966,784)
Kenwood Elementary ($1,729,333)

Clawson Bus Garage ($90,049)
District athletic sites ($411,705)
In general, district officials, say, approval of the bond issue will benefit students and district residents in two ways:
It will enhance the learning environment and student security by remodeling, equipping, and re-furnishing school buildings and other facilities.
- It will prepare, develop, and improve sites at school buildings and other school district facilities.
