(Maumee, OH) The Maumee school board will ask the public to approve a property tax increase in May. The school district hopes to stay out of debt by increasing its levy ask, which would raise nearly two-and-a-half million dollars per year.
The 5.9 mill levy was the highest among four options discussed by the Maumee school board at a Monday meeting. The superintendent says the improving economy should help the district’s chances at passage.
Eastwood Schools also will go to the voters and seek levy funding during the May primary. But the school board only approved a five-year replacement levy for permanent improvements and chose not to seek new money.
That levy was first passed in 1980 and has won approval every election since then.
