A rendering of the proposed early childhood center outlines what would be built in the Paw Paw Public school district if a bond issue is approved by voters in August.

PAW PAW — Voters in the Paw Paw school district will be asked in August to approve a $53.64 million bond proposal to fund several facility upgrades.

The Paw Paw Public Schools Board of Education will place the proposal on the ballot for the Aug. 3 primary election. If approved, it would add 1 mill to the district’s existing debt millage rate and equate to a property tax increase of about $4.17 per month – on a $100,000 home with a taxable value of $50,000.
