The Marquette Area Public School’s Board of Education met for a final time tonight before their 1.5 mill bond proposal hits the November ballot.

If the bond is approved it will bring just over 29 million into the school district.

Board President Tony Retaskie as well as the other school board members have been striving to educate the public and make sure they know the facts before the vote on November 8th.
