Youngstown voters to see same school levy



Published: Tue, July 3, 2007 @ 4:13 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN —  Residents of the Youngstown City School District are likely to be asked to approve the same size tax levy in November that they turned down eight months ago.

The Rev. Michael Write, president of the city school board, said it would be “very logical” to conclude that the board will have to come back to the voters for the same size tax increase in an effort to help rid the district of a $15 million budget deficit.

Voters turned down a 9.5-mill tax levy last November.   One of those mills was to be set aside for permanent improvements with the rest going for operating expenses.

The state placed the Youngstown schools under a fiscal emergency designation in November after the district announced it expected to run a general fund deficit in the 2006-07 fiscal year that ended Saturday.
