Perkins Schools hosts levy discussion
Feb 4, 2013
The goal is to recruit levy supporters for the upcoming campaign, but anyone can join the discussion, superintendent Jim Gunner said. It will begin at 7 p.m. in room 805 of Perkins High School.
“We encourage the community to come and become informed,” Gunner said.
Perkins Schools will propose two levies for the May ballot: A five-year renewal of a 2-mill permanent improvement levy and a 10-year, 4.98-mill emergency operating levy.
If approved, the operating levy would provide funds to construct a new building for both junior high and high school students.
Gunner and school board members will present information about the levies and a recent report from the Ohio School Facilities Commission addressing health and safety concerns in the current Perkins High School building.
A short question and answer session will follow.
“We expect civil discourse,” Gunner said. “The intent isn’t to turn the evening into a pro versus con debate of the levy, but if there are questions among taxpayers we’ll certainly try to answer those to the best of our ability.”
