A committee supporting the levy request for Perrysburg Schools will kick off its campaign Saturday at Harrison Rally Day in downtown Perrysburg.
The festival is “kind of the start of the political season locally,” said Superintendent Thomas Hosler.
Mr. Hosler noted that many families come to the district specifically because of the school system, and he wants to be able to continue the caliber of education and services.
“We have a special responsibility in the community,” he said Tuesday.
The district is asking for voter approval Nov. 6 of an estimated 13.15 mills that would generate $10 million in the first year. The tax would increase to 14.4 mills in the second year, to 15.7 mills in the third year, and to 17 mills in the final fourth year.
The owner of a $200,000 house pays $609 annually, or 9.95 mills, for a levy that is generating $7.57 million annually and is to expire at the end of this year. The new levy would increase taxes about $313 a year for the owner of a $200,000 house.
Information on the levy will be available on the grounds of the Commodore Building at Indiana and Louisiana avenues, as well as at a booth downtown in the festival area.
