Foreclosures during the Great Recession added to thousands of blighted properties in Columbus. But, a state program helped fund demolition of many of those houses and apartment units.
Columbus Council Of PTAs Declines To Back Levy Campaign
A coalition of Columbusâ€™ PTA clubs reportedly will not endorse the districtâ€™s levy campaign.
The group voted this week to not take a position on the levy that would mean about $400 in new annual property taxes for the average Columbus home.
They’re also not supporting or opposing a proposal to create a new auditor position that would report to a city commission.
Mayor Michael Coleman and interim superintendent Dan Good continue their campaign FOR the levy tonight with a Southside townhall meeting.
The two ballot issues were recommended by the mayor’s education commission. The commission was appointed after news that several high-ranking school employees retroactively changed thousands of attendance records.
