Southwestern Schools to go to voters again
The Southwestern City School district will ask voters a third time for a tax levy to help stave off a projected budget deficit.
The board voted unanimously Monday night to place a 9.7 mill operating levy on the May ballot.
Voters in the district rejected similar levy requests earlier this month and last November.
Bill Saxton will head the campaign for the May Levy. He expressed optimism despite the two recent voter rejections.
On February 8th, Southwestern District voters defeated a proposed levy by 721 votes.
The board has until Thursday to file the necessary paperwork for May vote with the Franklin County Board of Elections.
