(Toledo, OH) A pair of levies on the November ballot get the backing of business groups. T
he Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce and its affiliated Toledo Area Small Business Association are putting support behind Issues 9 and 12, renewal levies for Toledo Public Schools and Toledo Metroparks.
In a statement, the business groups say TPS has shown improvement in such areas as early childhood education, honors graduates, and career-technical programs. The five-year levy provides about $14 million per year in funding.
The business groups call the Metroparks an agency that helps provide a quality of life that assists in attracting and retaining a talented workforce. The ten-year Metroparks levy generates about $10 million annually.
