Voters approve renewal levy

A majority of voters approved the five-year levy, according to unofficial election results.


The levy, first approved in 2008, generates about $1.2 million a year for the district. The annual budget is about $14.6 million.

The levy’s success will not increase taxes. The owner of a $100,000 home will continue to pay $181 a year, or about $1,520 total in school-related taxes.

Citizens for Huron Schools, a new committee led by district parents Amy Roldan and Brad Hartung, had been campaigning for the levy since August. They hosted a watch party Tuesday night at Jim’s Pizza Box on Main Street with superintendent Dennis Muratori.

After the results came in, Muratori and others shared high-fives and commended the committee’s efforts.

“I would like to thank the entire community for believing in and supporting our students, faculty and staff,” he said. “While passage of the renewal levy provides some stability, we know the district will need to make difficult decisions moving forward to address our financial needs.”
