MOUNT VERNON — While the Mount Vernon City Schools are celebrating a levy victory, 66 percent to 34 percent, East Knox is facing fiscal emergency because its combination levy failed, Loudonville-Perrysville had one win and one loss and North Fork’s renewal of its school earned income tax was defeated.
Mount Vernon Superintendent Steve Short said the board of education and administration are very grateful to the community for its support and thankful to the many volunteers who worked to get the levy passed.
“This is a special community, and I’m very pleased the community, by passing this levy, is giving our new superintendent the resources to work with,” he said.
Short said high school busing will return in the fall. He added, “We still have to work hard to make sure we keep ourselves on budget and use the taxpayer dollars wisely and efficiently.”
