JERRY CITY, Ohio - Elmwood Local Schools will ask voters to renew the district's two income tax issues in November, although neither expires for more than a year.
Superintendent Dave Rossman said the board is simply looking ahead in asking for five-year renewals of its 0.75 percent and 0.5 percent income taxes. The issues generate more than $1.1 million a year for the southern Wood County district.
"Our school district is very conservative in its spending, and we are in good financial condition right now," Mr. Rossman said.
The 0.75 percent income tax was first approved in 1991, while the 0.5 percent tax was first approved in 1995.
