Levy would go toward repairs and improvements
HUBBARD -- The board of education will seek a renewal levy and an additional emergency levy on the Nov. 6 ballot.
The ballot language was given a first reading at Monday's special board meeting. The second reading will be Aug. 13 at 7:45 p.m.
The language must go through two public readings and board approval before Aug. 23, the final date for putting issues on the ballot.
The first issue, renewal of a 6.4-mill emergency levy originally passed in 1996 and expiring in 2002, does not increase taxes. Last May, Hubbard voters defeated a similar emergency levy for 9.9 mills.
The second issue is an emergency levy that will generate $1,047,214 per year for five years for operating costs and permanent improvements. Some planned work includes installing new windows for the high school, replacing the middle school boiler, replacing old buses, fixing the bus garage and completing the stadium project, schools officials explained.
In other business, the board entered an agreement with Score Pro Inc. to install new scoreboards at no cost to the district. The score boards, worth $86,855, would be placed at the football field, track field and gymnasium and feature rented advertising space.
