W-G to put a 4.9-mill renewal levy on May ballot

January 17, 2013

WAYNESFIELD —  Waynesfield-Goshen School Board members agreed to put a 4.9-mill renewal levy on the ballot in the May primary election.

The levy, which has been in place since 1988, funds permanent improvements for items such as grounds, buses, equipment, and technology. While voters passed the levy at 4.9 mills, the levy generates approximately $196,000 per year and has rolled back to an effective rate of approximately 3.3 mills, meaning it currently cost a homeowner with a $100,000 home approximately $116 per year.
