CENTERBURG — The Centerburg Local School District is asking voters to renew a 1.5-mill permanent improvement levy. The cost to a homeowner with a property valued at $100,000 is approximately $20 a year.
Originally passed in the 1980s, and consistently renewed by the electorate, the levy generates roughly $78,000 a year. To avoid the costs of placing the issue on the ballot every five years, the board is asking voters to renew the levy for a continuing period of time.
The money generated by the permanent improvement levy goes toward maintenance and upkeep of grounds and facilities and the purchase of items that have a life-expectancy of more than five years — school buses, technology and textbooks, to name a few.
