Residents within the Clawson Public Schools’ district voted to maintain its funding Nov. 6.
The existing 10-year, 18.6-mill non-homestead proposal earned support for its renewal from 64.03 percent (4,085) of 6,380 voters.
Applied to businesses and secondary homes, not primary residences for residents living in Clawson throughout the year, the 18-mill levy is expected to generate about $1.6 million per year for Clawson Public Schools’ operating budget from 2013 through 2022.
District residents were also charged with filling two vacant seats on the Board of Education, although newcomer Brad Batur was the only candidate on the ballot.
Fellow newcomers Glenn Shepard and Brady DiAntonio announced their intent to run as write-in candidates during the final month leading up to the election, but only amassed a combined 344 votes (8.31 percent), compared with 3,796 votes (91.69 percent) received by Batur.
Whether Shepard or DiAntonio got the edge for the second available seat was not immediately known based on results posted by Oakland County.
