Marysville voters approve 6.56-mill renewal levy


Thanks to approval of a five-year, 6.56-mill renewal levy Tuesday, Nov. 5, Marysville schools superintendent Diane Mankins said voters will get a break from levy talk, at least for awhile.

“We at least would not be in front of the voters until 2016,” she said. “We’re happy we can give everyone a little relief.”

Unofficial figures from the Union County Board of Elections show the levy passed by 3,742 to 1,519 votes, or 71.13 percent to 28.87 percent.

The levy currently is collecting at 3.05661 mills and costs $93.62 a year per $100,000 of property valuation.

District officials said the renewal will not increase property owners’ taxes.
