Auditor Determines School Levy Will Be 6.57-Mills
In order to generate 6.5 million for the school district, the millage will be 6.57, according to the county auditor.
District Treasurer Catherine Bulgrin said the Summit County Auditor's office certified the millage for a possible new money emergency levy in August at 6.57-mills Wednesday.
For the owner of a $100,000 home, the levy would cost:
- $201.21 annually
- $100.60 for half a year
- $16.77 a month
- 55 cents a day
The board only took the first of two steps toward getting the levy on the ballot.
"What's most important to understand is that the $6.5 million doesn’t get us out of the hole ... it only allows us to continue to limp along with reductions," said Boardmember Denny Mariola. "The board would have to take a look at additional reductions."
He said he expects the board to announce further "major expense reductions" by mid-May.
The district, during the last three years, has cut about $3.5 million from its expenses.
The next board meeting is scheduled for April 11 at Lakeview Intermediate School at 6 p.m., when the board is expected to approve going on the ballot Aug. 2.
