"I'm hoping that with school back in session, a lot of people we may have lost [Aug. 2] on vacation will be there to support us," said Board President Pat Matthews.
The board unanimously voted during a special meeting to take the first of two steps to see a 6.57-mill 10-year levy on the Nov. 8 ballot. The first step is to send the millage amount to the Summit County Auditor's office for certification.
The board will meet again during a regular meeting Aug. 8 at 6 p.m. at the Stow-Munroe Falls High School to approve the second step to put the issue on the ballot before the Aug. 10 deadline.
A 6.57-mill levy would generate $6.5 million annually for 10 years and would cost the owner of a $100,000 home:
- $201.21 annually
- $100.60 for half a year
- $16.77 a month
- 55 cents a day
If passed, the first collection would be in 2012.
Issue 2 failed by about 1,400 votes Aug. 2.
