Maumee schools to ask for improvement levy

The Maumee Board of Education plans to ask voters to approve a permanent improvement levy in November.

The board agreed Monday to ask the county auditor to determine the amount of money that would be raised by a five-year or continuing levy of 0.5, 0.75, or 1 mills, Treasurer Paul Brotzki said.

The levy would provide for new school buses, work on parking lots and elementary-school air conditioners, and computer and technology upgrades.

Superintendent Greg Smith said the district has 15 buses that are more than 15 years old, and would like to replace two a year. One parking lot a year would be repaved or rebuilt, and the district would purchase computers for classrooms.

We would like to be able to provide modern, up-to-date technology for our students, he said. In three or four years, several athletic facilities will need attention, he added.
