The Grandview Heights City School District has placed Issue 6 on the Nov. 2 ballot.

The ballot issue is a combined 5.9-mill levy containing a three-year, 3.9-mill component for operating funds and a continuing 2-mill component that will be used for permanent improvements and classroom technology upgrades.

The five-year, 1.65-mill permanent improvement levy voters approved in November 2005 will expire at the end of this year.

The district has been able to stretch the three-year 7.85-mill operating levy voters also approved in 2005 for five years, but projections show that without a new operating levy, the district will face a $237,855 deficit in 2012-13.

If approved by voters, the combined 5.9-mill levy will cost a homeowner an additional $140.60 per year for every $100,000 in valuation. It would generate about $1.6-million each year.

Although the total levy amount is 5.9 mills, with 1.31 permanent improvement mills expiring at the end of the year, the effective amount is 4.59 mills.
