National surveys show consumers’ mood is brightening, and it’s not just holiday cheer. The more positive outlook has a lot to do with the steep drop in gasoline prices since last summer. 2015 holds the promise of more price relief not only at the gas pump but also at grocery stores.
Voters Approve Issue One, Most Local School Levies
It was a good day for school districts asking voters for money.
Ten of the 14 school districts with levies on the ballot saw those tax requests passed by voters on Tuesday.
Voters approved levies in Berne Union, Canal Winchester, Granville, Groveport Madison, Jonathan Alder, Johnstown, Jefferson, Madison Plains, Northridge, and North Union school districts.
Levies for Liberty Union-Thurston, Logan Elm, Southwest Licking, and Walnut Township school failed yesterday.
Voters also approved Issue One, letting the state continue selling bonds to pay for roads, bridges, and other local infrastructure projects.
