Swanton school board may take levy off ballot

SWANTON — The Swanton Local Schools Board of Education is to discuss pulling its permanent improvement levy renewal request from the Nov. 4 ballot at 7 p.m. Monday.

Board members this week discussed removing the permanent improvement levy from the ballot, saying it might give their new operating levy a better chance of passing.

The board agreed to meet again this week if Treasurer Jeff Price finds the school would be able to operate without the permanent improvement levy for some time.

But Tuesday Superintendent Kevin McQuade said the issue would go on Monday's agenda.

The board agreed this week to put a five-year, 1 percent income tax for operating funds on the Nov. 4 ballot.

Earlier this month the board put on the November ballot a 3.3-mill, five-year permanent improvement levy renewal and a 0.4-mill, five-year recreation levy renewal for the Swanton Park and Recreation Board.
