TWINSBURG -- With Issue 15, a 6.9-mill new Twinsburg School District operations levy as the lone measure on the spring ballot for local voters, poll workers at the Twinsburg Public Library say traffic was "slow but steady."

Val Kochis, voting location manager, said voting was "slow but steady." Babinek was the 76th voter in her precinct at around 12:20 p.m. May 2.

At the Reminderville Municipal Center, which serves registered voters in both Aurora and Reminderville, about 100 voters had cast ballots as of early afternoon May 2.

Issue 15, a new levy, would generate about $5.65 million per year for the Twinsburg City School District, money that school officials say is crucial in keeping the district out of the red by 2020.

The levy, if passed, would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an extra $241.50 per year in property taxes.

The district will see its state funding share drop by about $9.8 million by 2020 with the phase out of the tangible personal property tax and the commercial activities tax.
