It appears that the Bloomfield Hills Schools Board of Education will decide to go to a May 8, 2012 ballot for yet another bond request for construction at the Andover site.
Be sure to read the ballot language carefully, as the wording of the ballot determines what the school district CAN and CANNOT do with all that money, should they prevail.
Members of Bloomfield 20/20 have submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for documents formulated by the district to get some indication of what the Ballot Language will include.
What we need to be careful about is any indication that will give the board "wiggle room" in terms of what they can do with the money. We taxpayers certainly do not want to see any phrases like "or for any purpose deemed to be necessary...."
Superintendent Rob Glass should INCLUDE the ballot language, or at least some sort of a draft of it, in his frequent presentations of the school construction proposal at scheduled "Town Hall" meetings.
Until the ballot language is approved by the board, taxpayers really have NO IDEA what they will be getting or how much it will cost.
