A reminder for voters in the Margaretta School District: There will be a special election on Tuesday to renew a 7.75 mill levy.
The levy would support operating costs for the school district, raising $1.2 million a year for five years if approved by voters.
The same levy previously failed in late May when the results were 754 for and 744 against in Erie County, and 115 for and 207 against in Sandusky County.
School officials were disappointed by the levy's failure in May because the renewal would not have raised taxes. The levy, first approved in 1998, will expire at the end of the year if not renewed before then.
“We feel that the programs we offer are important to provide well-rounded kids coming out of our school system,” superintendent Ed Kurt said after the May election. “We’d like to continue to offer clubs and sports.”
The levy now costs the owner of a $100,000 home $184.24 per year. That would not change if voters approve the five-year renewal.
