Voters going to the polls in the March primary to pare down the field of presidential candidates will see a lot of local issues, too.
In addition, four school districts will be asking voters to give them a financial boost.
Superintendent Robert Boynton, in a letter on the district’s Web site, said if passed, the money raised by the levy will reduce the pay-to-play charge to $200 per year as of August.
The money also would restore the busing for kindergartner through eighth-grade.
Midview, meanwhile, is seeking a new, 2.5-mil levy to be used for general improvements for the next five years.
“It won’t be used for salaries and benefits for employees,” said Robert Callaway, school board president. “It’ll be used to pay for necessary improvements in the district, including major repairs.”
Callaway said that the levy also would cover items such as new buses, textbooks and computers.
Callaway said he did not have numbers available to say how much the levy will raise, or how much it will cost the owner of a $100,000 home if passed.
“We hope they’re supportive,” he said. “We’ll see.”
Other school levies on the ballot include a 4.77-mill, three-year renewal levy for Vermilion Schools and the 4.99-mill bond issue for North Ridgeville Schools.
The other issues on the ballot are:
• The Lorain County MRDD board wants to renew its 1.69-mill levy for five years.
• Lorain County 911 wants to renew its 0.35-mill levy to for five years.
