Poland officials field questions tonight about proposed levy


Residents peppered school officials with questions Wednesday evening during a forum about the five-year, 5.9-mill emergency operating levy on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.

If approved, the levy is expected to generate $2,181,867 annually. It would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $180.68 annually.

Joel Roscoe of the Buckeye Association of School Administrators spent the first hour of the forum explaining school funding in Ohio and how it relates to Poland.

Poland has lost about $2.4 million in state funding since 2009, he said, and expenditures, such as diesel fuel and textbooks, keep increasing.

Poland “operates efficiently” and is “truly doing less with more,” he said.

Then the forum was opened to questions.
