JACKSON TWP:The Jackson Board of Education discussed the impact of the parks and road levy, which will be on the November ballot at its meeting Tuesday night. 


Trustee member Todd Hawke also attended the meeting and said, if passed, the levy will generate $2.9 million, which will help to offset the loss of $3.29 million in state funding.

If this levy fails, the parks will cease to exist as they do now.  There will be cutbacks with snow plowing, salt for the winter, and road maintenance.  The road maintenance is an important issue for the school system because they rely on buses to transport students, and lack of winter maintenance on the roads could result in traffic problems.
