Perrysburg Board of Education pondering levy renewal
At the May 6 meeting, the Perrysburg Board of Education discussed the permanent improvement levy and whether to let it expire in December or put it on the ballot as a renewal or replacement.
The five-year levy was passed on November 3, 2015, and is set to expire December 31, 2020.
Superintendent Tom Hosler emphasized that the levy, which generates approximately $1.6 million annually, is used for only non-personnel school building maintenance and repairs.
“If the board chooses a renewal, it would not be a new tax,” he explained. “In fact, it would be levied at the current effective rate, which would continue to decrease over time.”
Since 1971, taxpayers have not paid all of the taxes charged for residential and agricultural real estate taxes.
