      Bay College asks for millage renewal

      One millage being voted on this Tuesday is on the Delta County ballot regarding Bay College.

      The college is looking for a one mill renewal for 20 years, which will raise about $1 million in the first year. Since this is a renewal, it will not increase taxes for Delta County residents.

      Each year, Bay College spends about $500,000 on capital maintenance projects.

      "It is giving us the ability to continue to provide really great, new programs," said Bay College President Laura Coleman. "We have buildings that are 20 and 30 years old, and so they just need some rehabilitation. We don't need to be building new buildings, but we need to be able to rehab the buildings that we currently have."

      Such maintenance includes upgrading computers, maintaining parking lots, heating systems and roofs. Delta County election results will be available here.
