Lorain school board OK levy increase for November ballot

LORAIN — A Lorain Schools levy increase will be on the November ballot, but Board of Education members haven’t decided how much of an increase to seek.

Board members at a special meeting this Wednesday evening unanimously approved seeking a levy proposal. They plan to decide on the amount and whether it will be sought through an income or property tax or a combination of both at a July 12th meeting at 5 p.m.

Voters approved a 23.85 renewal levy last month that generates about $9.4 million annually for the school district, but the school district hasn’t had a levy increase since 1992.
