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.
If Issue 67 — the Stow-Munroe Falls School District's 10-year 7.84-mill levy —fails, the district plans to pursue the renewal levy again. 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.

It would begin in 2013 with collection starting the …
