Miami Valley Levy And Tax Issues Set For May 6 Primary
Most ballot issues and candidates have been confirmed for the May 6 primary election, and as usual, there are a lot of tax and levy questions coming up, although many are renewals, which means they won’t affect current tax rates.
Here’s the list of new or additional levy and tax issues WYSO will be covering running up to May 6, 2014, based on county board of elections' preliminary information:
Brookville Local School District (LSD) will be seeking a 5.25-mill additional levy for operating expenses.
