Voters in a handful of southwest Michigan communities went to the polls Tuesday. South Haven Public Schools had a bonding proposal on the ballot that was approved. The district will bond more than $34 million for what it calls “significant enhancements to health and safety, core infrastructure, educational programming, and energy management.” The project will include ventilation and air purification systems, as well as upgrading classroom doors, boilers, electrical systems, and roofing. It will also mean upgrading instructional technology, sensory spaces at the elementary buildings, and improvements to athletic facilities. Much of the building work would be focused on the elementary and middle school buildings, as the last bonding request focused on the high school. Voters said yes by a margin of 990 to 502. Elsewhere, in Berrien County, Royalton Township voters approved a fire equipment millage, and school millages were approved in Edwardsburg and Hartford.
