TPS levy up for vote in November

      The TPS board voted to put the levy on the November ballot on Monday morning.

      A unanimous vote put the proposed 6.9 mill levy on Toledo Public School's map during the special board meeting on Monday morning.

      The levy will now go up for a vote on the November election ballot.

      Several elected officials and community and business leaders will gather to declare their support at the TPS Levy Kickoff at 10:30 a.m.

      Leaders will emphasize that "strong schools promote job growth and protect property values."

      The district says the 6.9 mill levy, which will cost the owner of a $60,000 house about $126.79 per year, will help continue the implementation of the multi-year tranformation plan and allow the school system to contribute to the region's renewal.

      If passed, the levy will generate $18.5 million for the district.
