Twinsburg Board of Education considers levy renewal for May ballot

by Conner Howard | reporter Published:

Twinsburg -- Voters in the Twinsburg City School District this spring may be asked to renew a 1993 levy that generates about $5 million annually for school operations.

The levy is set to expire in December and carries an effective millage rate of 5.4 mills, said school district treasurer Martin Aho, as the millage fluctuates according to home values in the city.

The levy that may appear on the May 7 ballot was first passed at 6.9 mills in 1993 and last renewed Nov. 6, 2007, according to school officials.

The proposed renewal was considered Jan. 9 by the Twinsburg Board of Education and must be submitted to the Summit County Board of Elections by Feb. 6 for approval and current millage calculation, in order to appear on the May 7 ballot.

In November, school district voters approved new money for the district, a 4.9-mill levy that will generate $3.8 million annually.

Check back at and in the Jan. 24 issue for more on the spring levy renewal.
