South Range schools to ask voters to approve reduced levy in November

NORTH LIMA

South Range School District is again asking voters to pass an operating levy, but this time it’s for a little less money than the one defeated in 2013.

The board of education voted unanimously tonight to put a 10-year, 3.9-mill operating levy on November’s ballot. That would generate $707,560 annually for the district and cost the owner of a $100,000 home $136.50 a year.

Last year’s 10-year, 4.8-mill levy was rejected by 66 percent of voters, according to Vindicator archives.

South Range Superintendent Dennis Dunham explained, “Due to some positive numbers with open enrollment and some of our other cost-saving measures, we knocked that down somewhat to 3.9-mills ... the money it generates is very much a necessity for the future of the district.”
