MABE Partners with Milestone

The Maryland Association of Boards of Education (MABE) is partnering with Milestone to share exciting revenue earning opportunities with Maryland's School Districts.

Milestone's wireless tower development program earns school boards recurring revenue streams. Last year, the program earned Fairfax County Public Schools over a $1 million.

"Using school assets to create revenue is a no brainer," said Doug Duncan, former County Executive for Montgomery County.

Milestone has been partnering with school districts for over ten years. It has developed over 25 stealth wireless towers.

Len Forkas to chair Fairfax County School Bond Commitee

Len Forkas has been chosen to chair the Chamber of Commerce School Bond Committee. The Fairfax School Board has asked the Board of Supervisors to place a $252.7 million school bond referendum in this November's election.

Len will lead the committee that will distribute information about the bond project and gain support in the community to authorize the sale of school bonds. If approved by voters, the bond will provide funds to renovate older schools and planning funds of school about to enter the renovation phase.
