Renewal Levy Set for May 2013 Election

The renewal wouldn’t raise taxes.

The Brecksville-Broadview Heights Board of Education voted to put a 7.4-mill renewal levy on the ballot this May during its meeting on Monday.

This was the final step for the board to put the renewal levy on the May 7 ballot, board President David Tryon said in an email.

According to a press release from the district, the levy was first passed in 1988 and brings in about $4.8 million a year. Passage of the renewal would not raise taxes, but rather, keep taxes at their current level.

This renewal levy is being placed on the ballot as a continuing levy. That means that if it is passed, taxpayers will continue to pay that millage in the future, but the levy would not be placed on the ballot again. Currently, this levy comes up for renewal every five years.

Residents voted to turn a renewal levy into a continuing levy in 2011. 

This renewal levy expires at the end of 2013.
