Committee OK’s Columbus Schools Levy Proposal


A new levy to improve Columbus City Schools would raise property taxes on homeowners.
The levy, if approved by the Columbus Board of Education and local voters, could raise property taxes $315 a year on each $100,000 of property value.
Columbus school officials say the money would be used for new pre-school expansion, new school construction projects, technology upgrades, and ongoing district operations.
The ballot issue was unanimously approved by a 14-member citizen millage panel Thursday morning.
The panel recommended the 9.01 new mills levy be put before Columbus City School District voters in the November election.
