Clyde-Green Springs levy for day-to-day operations

GREEN SPRINGS — Voters for the Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District will be considering a five-year, 4.2-mill emergency operating levy this November.

The levy is to generate $1 million annually, Superintendent Dennis Haft said.

The funds collected are to be used for all general expenses the district incurs — including utility costs, personnel costs, fuel costs, and anything else the district would need to operate day-to-day.

The levy is to cost a homeowner of a home costing $100,000, $12 per month. Haft said due to the district paying off one of the bonds, taxes collected will be reduced amounting to slightly under $10 per month.

“I would like to thank our community for always supporting our schools,” Haft said. “I think we have a very close bond with our community and I am very grateful. I hope the voters will strongly consider supporting this levy. We have built a district where all students can find success no matter their interest.”

The levy failed this past May, if it fails in November Haft said the district would need to reanalyze what steps they would need to take next.

“I am optimistic that our great community will support us so I am only thinking positive thoughts at this time,” he said.
