ISHPEMING SCHOOL'S BUSINESS MANAGER ANTHONY BERTUCCI.

The Ishpeming School District is moving forward with a 11.2 million dollar bond proposal, and we sat down with District Business Manager Anthony Bertucci to find out more.  According to Bertucci, the Board of Education is asking for approval to sell bonds in the amount of $11,240,000 for construction at the Birchview School.  The construction includes 7 classrooms, a library, a dedicated computer lab, remodeling the existing gym into a cafeteria/full service kitchen, fire suppression system,  remodeling the existing areas of the school, a music room, restrooms, gymnasium, and making the current cafeteria into an art room.  When completed, the Birchview School will be a new school.  The Michigan Department of Treasury has reviewed and approved the project and has authorized the Board to place the proposal on the ballot.  The State of Michigan will guarantee the bonds for investors.
