Mishawaka school district needs $28 million for repairs, AP reports

MISHAWAKA, Ind. — State caps on property taxes and a decreasing tax value could force the Mishawaka school district to ask voters to approve a referendum to help fix aging facilities.

The Associated Press reports that school officials say the district has a long list of repairs it needs to make. But it can't borrow the estimated $28 million it would cost.

A 2008 state law requires schools to seek voters' permission before they start those construction projects.

Areas needing repair are the high school stadium lights, flooring, countertops, sidewalks and heating systems.
