Canfield school board gives first reading to proposed additional levy



Published: Thu, July 25, 2013 @ 10:30 a.m.

CANFIELD — It has been 11 years since the Canfield School District has seen additional funding come in from a levy.

The board gave first reading for a new levy at a meeting this morning and will have to meet again to approve it before the levy actually makes it on the November ballot.

A 5-9-mill additional levy was mentioned, but no final decision was made on the exact amount. The deadline to put tax levies and other issues on the fall ballot is Aug. 7.

“Our school system is the heart of our community,” said Alex Geordan, superintendent of Canfield schools. “What we offer in our schools is a top-notch education, and to continue that and to grow as a system, additional revenue is going to be needed.”

Yeah and remember its because of Kasichs deep cut to the public schools that is mainly responsible for this levy. It's not teachers,bus drivers or any other employees its Kasich.

All about KASICH? or is it all about union benefit packages that have been borderline bankrupting the entire nation? stated:11 yrs. since additional funding,,, yea right! Does anyone believe that statement? lets consider some of the tax base in the last 11 yrs,, Westford community, Villa Rosa development,,Meadows, Fox Den, Tippecanoe Woods, Kings Lane, $26M on 1 home on Tippecanoe RD., Busing stopped, and the list goes on, No One states that the money is all gone,,, the board only states that it has been a long time and about time for more money revenue,,,, stand up against those that just want more and NO cuts in benefit packages to save,, if the board cannot seem to have any answer other than "WE NEED MORE! remove them,,, they took that job knowing they were there to straighten out the spending,,, not demanding more money to find ways to spend!
