Bowling Green to look into what's next after failed levy


Bowling Green held its first school board meeting since the levy failed for a second time on the May primary ballot.

The 5.7 mill bond would have brought in $72 million over a 37 year period. It was shot down by more than 1,300 votes last week.

The levy also failed in November, by a much closer margin.

The school is now trying to find out what it needs to do next, but is asking for input.

"I think we really have to do a very good job of finding out what this community wants because obviously this is not what they wanted and we can accept that," said Superintendent Francis Scruci.

The levy would have consolidated Bowling Green's elementary schools and updated the high school.
