CONSTANTINE Imagine a public school without any athletic programs, or buses to take kids to school. Constantine school administrators say that vision could become reality, if voters don't approve millages for the school.

According to The Elkhart Truth, Michigan schools get part of their budgets from a millage on businesses and second homes. They must renew those millages every 20 years.

Constantine area voters have failed millage votes for the past three years. If they vote it down again, the schools’ mills will drop to zero, resulting in a $1.6 million loss to the school district.
