School board takes first step toward levy

The Troy City Schools Board of Education took the first step needed to place a renewal levy on the March primary ballot during its Nov. 16 meeting.

The board approved asking the Miami County Auditor’s Office to certify the amount the 5.8-mill, five-year levy would generate. The second step of asking the county Board of Elections to place the request on the ballot will be taken by the board in December before the mid-month filing deadline.

“It is very important that we get the word out that this is a renewal levy,” said board President Doug Trostle. With voter approval several years ago of a district income tax, the board has not had to ask voters to approve additional millage, he said, adding, “We are asking to maintain what we have.” NANCY BOWMAN, CONTRIBUTING WRITER
