(Toledo, OH) Washington Local Schools will seek more money from voters in November.
The Washington board of education took the first step Wednesday night in putting a levy on the November ballot.
The board of education will ask voters to approve a 4.9 mill property tax levy, which would raise taxes for the owner of a $100,000 home by more than $170 per year.
The ballot issue is considered a "combination levy," meaning the funds would be used for both current operating expenses and permanent improvements. A second vote will be required of the school board at its June meeting to formally put the tax request on the ballot.
