Presenter:  Superintendent Thoenes
Description:  In case voters do not approve a renewal of the Kalamazoo County Enhancement Millage on May 5, Superintendent Thoenes recommends that the Comstock Board approve a new resolution of support for KRESA's Board to place the Enhancement Millage on the August ballot.  According to the County Clerk, KRESA's Board of Education must approve a new ballot resolution by no later than May 11 to meet the statutory requirements and qualify for the August election.  KRESA's Board needs county school boards to approve this resolution now to have sufficient support to do so.  Given our schedule for Board meetings, tonight is the only available opportunity for our Board to both review and move this resolution to action.
