North Baltimore board asks input on school funding

NORTH BALTIMORE, Ohio Before deciding what kind of tax issue to put on the May ballot, the North Baltimore school board wants to hear from the public.

A public forum has been set for 7 p.m. tomorrow in the high school auditorium.

Residents can bring their ideas about how the district ought to pay for a proposed construction project.

In November, North Baltimore voters rejected a 28-year, 7.44-mill bond issue and a 25-year, 0.25 percent income tax that would have paid the local share of a new high school-middle school and renovations at the elementary school.

The Ohio School Facilities Commission would have picked up 59 percent of the $20 million project.

Superintendent Kyle Clark said a new law would allow the board to seek funding for part, rather than all, of the building project, which is one option he will be outlining at tomorrow s meeting.
