Poland levy finalized
The Poland school board took the final step to place a five-year, 5.9-mill emergency operating levy on the Nov. 6 general-election ballot.
At its regular meeting earlier this week, the board voted 4-1 to send the resolution to the Mahoning County Board of Elections. If approved, the levy is expected to generate $2,181,867 annually.
The levy would cost the owner of $100,000-valued home $180.68 annually, according to the Mahoning County Auditor’s Office.
