MIAMI VALLEY--Majority of School Levies Rejected
There were nearly 200 school levies on the ballot Tuesday in Ohio. WYSO's Wayne Baker reports that several districts around the Miami Valley were seeking levy support from voter's to replace state aid ad revenue lost through tax changes.
In Montgomery County, Centerville, Miamisburg, Huber Height and Vandalia-Butler all had levy requests rejected by voters. Jefferson Township and West Carrolton were also unsuccessful.
Clark County voters said no to Tecumseh, Northeastern and Greenon schools, but in the Clark-Shawnee School District, voters approved a 7.49-mill renewal levy.
Greene County voters rejected levies in Fairborn, Xenia and Beavercreek. In Yellow Springs, the district's 7.4-mill emergency levy passed and Cedar Cliff voters approved a renewal levy.
