Sinking Fund

What is a Sinking Fund?

A sinking fund is a savings account into which a local school district can deposit voter-approved local millage revenue in order to pay cash for the most urgent building projects or repairs as they arise. Sinking funds provide districts with a cost-effective alternative to borrowing or bonding for some expenditures because they require none of the associated legal fees or incurred interest.

What can Sinking Fund dollars be used for?

It used to be that funds generated through a sinking fund can only be used for renovation, repair, and construction of buildings, but recent legislation has allowed for expanded use. This expanded use now covers some expenses related to safety, security, and technology. Sinking fund dollars cannot be used for any operating expenses such as salaries, benefits, or routine maintenance. In addition, the money cannot be used for textbooks or bus replacement.

What are some examples of Sinking Fund projects the district would investigate if the replacement passes?

With the expansion of use to include safety, security, and technology, the district may seek to:

Security camera

Install more security cameras inside and outside of each school:

Security cameras offer mostly forensic evidence, but they can also be a deterrent. In addition, they can serve as a valuable resource for responding officers if they are able to tap into a live feed of the building to see inside. With the Sinking Fund dollars, we may be able to install security cameras that would give police a window into the ongoing activity, shortening the time between response and results.

BluePoint SystemInstall BluePoint Emergency Alert System in every school:

The BluePoint system provides pull stations (similar to fire alarm pulls) that anyone in the building can utilize to call a Lockdown. Once pulled, police are immediately notified, building occupants are notified via flashing strobe lights and an audio sound, and text/email/voice alerts are sent to district staff who can begin to respond to the crisis. In addition, the system can be tied to specific doors, closing off sections of the school building and preventing an intruder from quickly moving throughout the school. To learn more, visit:

http://www.bluepointalert.com/police-alert/.

School bus camera footageInstall security cameras on each school bus:

School bus camera systems are helpful in instances of bullying or unsafe behavior. The driver's main responsibility on the bus is to safely transport the students to and from school. Security cameras can offer an additional set of eyes without requiring additional staff onboard.

GPS GraphicProvide a GPS bus tracking app for families to know the whereabouts of their child's bus and the approximate time of arrival:

In some cases, students may wait for a bus in the morning for longer than expected. In very cold temperatures or dark conditions, this may create a problematic situation. With a GPS app, students would be able to track the bus and head outside just prior to its arrival.

Glass film being installedInstall bullet-proof glass or glass film:

Glass doors and windows provide lines of sight that are critical for positive relationships and security visibility. That said, they may make the building more vulnerable in an active shooter situation. Strategic placement of film can deter unwanted individuals for up to two minutes, which is the approximate response time of Bloomfield Township Police. In addition, those critical two minutes would give occupants time to fully enact a Lockdown.

BollardsPlace bollards outside of main school entrances:

A bollard is a fixed post or object that presents a clear, visible barrier for off-limit or sensitive areas. They are often designed to withstand high-impact vehicle collisions and are ideal for schools with vulnerable populations. The most common bollards are metal, stone, cement, or plastic. In the event of a collision near the school, a bollard may prevent a wayward vehicle from accidentally hitting a pedestrian.

What is Bloomfield Hills Schools requesting on the May ballot?

On May 8, 2018, voters in Bloomfield Hills Schools will be asked to consider a .7165 mill, six-year sinking fund replacement (to replace the existing sinking fund, set to expire in December of 2018). The sinking fund would generate approximately $2,500,000 each year which would be used for specific purposes, as set forth by the State of Michigan. Thanks to new legislation, acceptable use of sinking fund dollars has been expanded to include safety, security, and technology.

More Questions & Answers

Why "replace" the current sinking fund?

New legislation has made it possible to use sinking fund dollars for safety, security, and technology. This was important legislation because it would enable us to better meet the priorities and urgent needs in these areas in addition to the critical and/or emergency repair of our school buildings. However, prior voter-approved sinking funds were not made eligible for this expanded use. In order to meet our safety, security, and technology needs with sinking fund dollars, voters would need to approve a new sinking fund, thus the replacement request on May 8, 2018.

Is .7165 mills the same as the previous sinking fund?

Yes, .7165 mills was the 2017 rate. This proposal is a no rate increase.

What does this mean to me?

1 mill would be 1/1000 of the home's taxable value with a formula of: (1/1000) * Taxable Value = _____. In our case, let's use the example of a home with a 100,000 taxable value: (.7165/1000) * 100,000 = $71.65 per year or $5.97 per month.

What happens if we don't have a sinking fund and what is the money typically used for?

If voters turn down this proposal, future costs of repairs to our buildings would have to come out of the district's general fund budget, which is our main operating fund for students' instructional needs.

In 2017, those expenses were:
  • District-wide roofing repairs (approx. $75,000)
  • WHMS Fieldhouse water damage, doors, and windows (approx. $110,000)
  • Nature Center Gates/Fence (approx. $18,000)
  • Lone Pine Sidewalks (approx. $31,000)
  • IA HVAC Controls (approx. $147,000)
  • Fox Hills HVAC/HVAC Controls (approx. $397,000)
  • Eastover Sidewalks (approx. $18,000)
  • EHMS Lockers, Elevator, and 4th grade move (approx. $746,000)
  • Bowers Farm Operable Walls (approx. $40,000)
  • BHMS Lockers, Drainage, and Sidewalks (approx. $143,000)
  • BHHS Doors (approx. $45,000)
  • Emergency/Unplanned (approx. $300,000+)

How do we decide what to place on the list and in what order?

HVAC Decisions:

  • Ongoing with a comprehensive review in the fall
  • Identification for repair/replacement in the fall = work completed that summer

Roof Decisions:

  • Walk-through every fall
  • In fall, outline work and assign priority order to each item
  • A high priority status = work completed that summer
  • Includes both proactive work and reactive repairs

In 2011, the district conducted a boiler assessment. From that, boilers were placed on a priority waiting list. However, boiler conditions may change and that may prompt a particular boiler to jump to the front of the list.

District staff drive every site multiple times per year to assess parking lot conditions. Depending on the severity and pace of decline, parking lots are placed on the Sinking Fund project list for repair and/or replacement.

What is the difference between "repair" and "maintenance"?

Sinking Fund does not cover maintenance (such as an HVAC filter). Maintenance is performed on a regular, scheduled basis to keep equipment and building components in good shape. Repair and replacement is required when the equipment or building parts fail. Repair and replacement is Sinking Fund allowable, but maintenance is not.

What about all of the new homes in the district and the increase in property values? Won't that bring in more money than anticipated?

The Constitutional Headlee Amendment requires the district to reduce the millage rate when the annual growth of existing property is greater than the rate of inflation. As a result, tax revenue increases are capped at the rate of inflation. Headlee law caps taxable value growth and therefore tax increases from increasing property values. The proposed rate is the same for 2018 as it was in 2017 and the amount of money generated cannot surpass a set amount, determined by Headlee. Generally speaking, the Sinking Fund is expected to generate $2.5 million per year, but may decrease if property values decrease.

What is the difference between a sinking fund millage and a bond?

A bond is a form of borrowing, which means taxpayers must pay back the borrowed funds over a period of years with interest.

A sinking fund millage is levied, not borrowed, which means the revenues are generated from a tax and do not include the district taking on additional debt or interest expense.

How will the proposal appear on the ballot?

This proposal, if approved by the electors, will replace and extend the authority last approved by the electors in 2010 and which expires with the 2018 levy for the Bloomfield Hills Schools to levy a building and site sinking fund millage. This proposal allows the use of proceeds of the millage for all purposes previously permitted by law as well as newly authorized security improvements and the acquisition or upgrading of technology. Pursuant to State law, the expenditure of the building and site sinking fund millage proceeds must be audited, and the proceeds cannot be used for teacher, administrator or employee salaries, maintenance or other operating expenses.

As a replacement of existing authority, shall the Bloomfield Hills Schools, County of Oakland, Michigan, be authorized to levy 0.7165 mills ($0.7165 per $1,000 of taxable valuation), for a period of six (6) years, being the years 2018 to 2023, inclusive, to create a building and site sinking fund to be used for the construction or repair of school buildings, school security improvements, the acquisition or upgrading of technology or for other purposes, to the extent permitted by law? This millage would provide estimated revenues to the School District of approximately Two Million Five Hundred Eighty-Three Thousand ($2,583,000) Dollars during the 2018 calendar year, if approved and levied.

What about the sale of Wabeek and Hickory Grove?

  • The sale of the Wabeek property closed in March 2017. The gross proceeds of $3.5 million were placed into the Capital Improvement Fund, most of which was utilized to pay for the demolition and asbestos abatement costs for Hickory Grove, the North portion of Lahser, and the former Board Office across from BHHS.
  • The sale of Hickory Grove is not yet finalized as the buyers continue to finalize governmental approvals. Upon closing, the sale calls for about ½ of the proceeds to be paid at closing for the first phase of the development. Once the first phase is complete, the district will receive the remaining proceeds. The sale proceeds, once received, are designated to be set aside in the district’s Capital Improvement Fund. The sale price of Hickory Grove is $5.45 million.

What is the difference between the Capital Improvement Fund and the Sinking Fund?

  • The Capital Improvement Fund is used for specific, non-recurring projects such as the recent demolition and asbestos abatement at Lahser. The Capital Improvement Fund cannot be used for operating costs (salaries, benefits, utilities, etc.) and is not a predictable source of funding.
  • The Sinking Fund is utilized for ongoing repair/replacement of emerging issues (leaky roof, replacement of boiler, sealcoat parking lot, etc.) and was recently expanded to include safety, security, and technology. The Sinking Fund also cannot be used for operating costs.

The sale of the properties would not be sufficient to meet the urgent repair and/or replacement needs throughout the district on an ongoing, long-term basis.

What has the Bloomfield Hills Schools community already supported in previous years at the polls?

Since 2000, the following proposals were approved by voters:


  • May 2004: Building & Site Sinking Fund Millage Proposal, 1.5 mils, 10 years
  • May 2005: Operating Millage Renewal**
  • November 2010: Two proposals were put forth on the ballot - 1) to consolidate the two high schools and 2) to reduce the Sinking Fund to .74 mils, 5 years, in an effort to reduce the tax burden on the community with the high school consolidation on the ballot. The high school consolidation failed, the Sinking Fund passed.
  • May 2012: The High School Bond Proposal was for a ⅔ new, ⅓ renovated school to be constructed/renovated on the former Andover High School site. The total bond amount proposed was $58,650,000 with 26 years being the maximum time for the bonds to be outstanding. The proposal passed.
  • May 2015: Operating Millage Renewal**
  • May 2018: Building & Site Sinking Fund Millage Replacement Proposal - to take advantage of new legislation, allowing Sinking Fund to be used for safety/technology (.7165 mils, 6 years).


**With the passage of Proposal A in the 1990’s, operating millages of 18 mills on “non-homestead” property and “hold harmless” mills on “homestead” property became allowable with voter approval so the district may receive the full foundation allowance per pupil set annually by the legislature.


How much was spent on the informational mailer for the Sinking Fund?

18,800 postcards printed. (18,222 postcards mailed, 578 postcards hand delivered.)

Postage: $1,573.66
Mailing services: $253.66
Printing cost: $1,403.67

TOTAL: $3,230.99
