Election Information

As we head into the Tuesday, May 7 election, we will provide information and updates here. Every voter who lives within the Holland Public School boundaries is eligible to participate in this election.

This 1.25 mill proposal is for 20 years. If approved by voters, the millage will raise $26 million to invest in updating our pool’s aging facility needs and expanding our programs and services.

This is why the community representatives on our Board of Trustees voted to place this proposal on the May 7 ballot.

We are committed to providing efficient and life-enhancing aquatic programs and services to Every Age. Every Family. Every Day for many years to come. There have only been two other times in the history of our pool where a significant investment of this kind has been brought before our community. Both were approved.

The first time was in 1968 when voters approved the original construction of the pool. The second time was in 1998, as it became time to both address major facility needs and construct a second pool and play area to better meet our community’s needs.

Now, in 2019, it’s time once again for our community to set the course for our pool’s future.

If you have any comments or questions at all, please contact one of us and we’ll make sure you get the information you need.

Thank you!
