CASSTOWN — Voters in the Miami East Local Schools district will have a levy renewal on the Nov. 7 ballot to consider.

This summer, the board of education voted to seek a renewal of the district’s five-year, 3.5-mill general operating levy.

According to Superintendent Dr. Todd Rappold, the majority of the funds from this levy is generated by public utilities. The levy was last renewed in November 2012 with 53 percent of voters in favor of the renewal.

The levy provides the district approximately $50,000 per year.

In previous reports, Treasurer Lisa Fahncke explained that a residential property owner would not see a decrease or an increase whether the levy passed or failed on Nov. 7, due to the 20-mill floor school funding formula. However, the district would lose the additional $50,000 provided through the utility services if the levy is not renewed.
