East China millage request turned down

A sinking fund millage renewal in the East China School district has failed. By a margin of nearly 700 votes, voters turned down the request from the school district to continue a 0.39 mil property tax for another ten years. Unofficial election results from the district from last night show over 3200 “no” votes compared to 2500 “yes” votes. The sinking fund millage was to be used to help fund repairs to East China School District buildings.
