I am writing in favor of the Tiffin City School's permanent improvement renewal levy that is on the ballot in November. This is not a new tax, but rather a continuation of a tax we've been paying since 1977.
When you consider the cost of the levy on an average home in terms of cost per day, it really is a very affordable way for everyone to contribute to the education of the children in Tiffin. A monthly investment of $1.19 per month for a homeowner of $100,000 home will be used to ensure we have the resources available to provide the buses, computer equipment, buildings and material necessary for a quality education for our kids; it's a remarkable value!
It is not only valuable to our students and faculty, it is good stewardship to take care of the physical assets we currently own. I continue to be impressed with the fact our district operates with one of the lowest tax bases in Seneca County and other NOL schools. Managing such a large district on such a tight budget must be a difficult task - I believe we should support the schools mission to guarantee our students learn to their fullest potential with the passing of this levy renewal.
