Stow residents will have an opportunity to vote on a 7.84-mill renewal levy Nov. 6 for 10 years in the Stow-Munroe Falls City School District.

The current five year levy in place is for 7.3-mills and generates $7.3 million annually for operating funds. It expires at the end of the year. The current levy, although passed five years ago at 7.3-mills, is being collected at 8.05-mills. According to Summit County Fiscal records, an 8.05-mill tax costs the owner of a $100,000 home about $250 annually. The millage for the renewal is higher than when it first passed and it is for 10 years, not five. The renewal levy, if passed Nov. 6, will still generate $7.3 million annually for the district. It would begin in 2013 with collection starting the …

The new sign, completely paid for with donations, was installed Oct. 4, 2012.
A student-lead initiative is the reason the Stow-Munroe Falls High School has a new electronic message board on Graham Road. Students solicited money from various organizations and groups and attending planning commission meetings at City Hall to get approval for the sign. The sign was completely paid for with donations. The electronic message board was designed by Go2 Marketing, a Twinsburg company. "The sign is state of the art, it's two sided, with amber lights," said Steve Fry, who was representing Go2Marketing at a council meeting in September. He added the text on the screens will not scroll. "It's much more aesthetically pleasing," Fry said. "It's going to be a great way to effectively communicate with the community."
