MARESA Asks for Special Ed Millage Again

One issue on the ballot for Alger and Marquette county voters November 2nd will be a request for special education funding.

The Marquette–Alger Regional Educational Service Agency will be asking voters again to decide a special education millage.

A 0.75 mill request was rejected by voters this past spring.

In November, the proposal is for 0.5 mills every year for 20 years.

The issue is for funding special education for special needs children in the two counties.

The funds raised by the millage would replace $579,000 in lost revenue this year.

The measure would amount to about $12.50 cents each year on a $100,000 home.
