Will A New Permanent Improvement Tax Levy Appear On The March 2024 Ballot?


WAYNESVILLE, OH -- After the permanent improvement levy failed by a little over 12 percent back in November, the Wayne Local School Board is holding a special meeting on Dec., 5, 2023 at 5:30 PM to discuss the approval of placing the same request to its voters on the March 19, 2024 Ballot. 

The purpose for the special meeting is to due to the 90 day filing deadline. Any questions or issues  to appear on the March 19, 2024 ballot must be certified or filed with boards of elections by 4 p.m. 90 days before the March 19, 2024 General Election. And, before the question can filed to be certified, the board needs to pass a resolution.

If the Wayne Local Board adopts to pass the resolution on Dec., 5, it will send the certified resolution asking the County Auditor to certify the additional tax levy being requested, which is ..."for a five-year period of time, for the purpose of general permanent improvements, at a rate not exceeding one and sixty-five hundredths (1.65) mills for each one dollar ($1) of taxable value."  

This request is the same request asked this past November, which if passed, would have generated .."$646,000 annually, at a rate not exceeding 1.65 mills for each $1 of taxable value, which amounts to $58 for each $100,000 of the county auditor's appraised value, for a continuing period of time." 

The  special meeting is at 5:30pm in the Performing Arts Center, Second Floor Board Room.
