5-mill levy to appear on March ballot

by Laura Bednar

Residents will see a 5-mill levy on the March 19 ballot for the Nordonia Hills City School District. The Summit County Fiscal Officer estimates the levy will collect $7.3 million each year and will cost the taxpayer $175 for each $100,000 of the county fiscal officer’s appraised property value.

The levy is, according to ballot language, “an additional tax for the benefit of the Nordonia Hills City School District for the purpose of providing funds for current operating expenses and for general permanent improvements …”

Four of the 5 mills would be dedicated to operating expenses, and the remaining mill would be directed to the permanent improvement fund. The levy would commence in 2024 with first collections in 2025. ∞
