Voters will have a significant hand in shaping the future of Marysville schools in Tuesday's election.

The Marysville Exempted Village School District is seeking the renewal of a 6.56-mill operating levy. The levy, first passed in 1989 and renewed three times since, is currently being collected at 3.02 mills for residential property and 4.84 mills for commercial and industrial property.

A renewal levy means no new taxes, maintaining the property tax rollback.

Superintendent Larry Zimmerman said that voter approval of the renewal levy would not only continue to generate $2.6-million annually in local taxes but also $1.3-million the district receives from the state as reimbursement for the 2005 elimination of the Tangible Personal Property Tax.

Because the 6.56-mill levy was passed originally in 1989 -- the five-year tax issue has since passed in 1994, 1999 and 2004 -- it is reimbursed for lost Tangible Personal Property Tax it would generate had that tax not been eliminated.

"Folks understand 'no new tax' and they understand we stand to hand $1.3-million back to the state," Zimmerman said.

Additionally, three seats are available on the district's board of education, with at least one to be filled by a new member.

Nine candidates will vie for three seats on the Marysville Exempted Village School District Board of Education this November.

The nine district residents who filed petitions by the Aug. 20 deadline to run for school board are David Bates, Tracy Greer, Scott Johnson, Doug Lassiter, Jeff Mabee, Nan Savidge, Monty Staats, Don Voss and Jeff Wirtz.

Mabee and Johnson, current board president and vice president, respectively, are incumbents.

Current board member Tom Brower is not seeking re-election.
