South-Western City Schools Levy Fails Again
Listen to the Story

The system already has eliminated more than $18 million in expenditures and slashed 300 jobs.
Schools Superintendent Bill Wise said last week if the levy failed the district may take the issue to the ballot again.
The proposal would have cost property owners an additional $254 a year for each $100,000 in value.
