VAN BUREN, Ohio After suffering one of the largest defeats in its history at the polls in November, the Van Buren Local School District will request approval of a slightly smaller operating levy.
The school district just north of Findlay is asking voters to approve a three-year, 5.5-mill emergency levy that would generate $1,275,000 a year. Voters rejected a four-year, 7.2-mill levy in November.
Superintendent Tim Myers said that the 950-student district is growing and needs the new operating dollars to stay in the black.
