Avon Lake has grown substantially in the past 3 decades. One common factor that has contributed to our growth is our outstanding School system, Administrative and Teaching staff, and the passion our residents shown daily in the support of our schools. Economics have changed for each of us. Our School District needs your help. Please have an open mind on the impact our schools have on your real estate investment!

I wish I would have seen this yesterday. Too bad it didn't make the e-mail version. I would really like to know what is such an emergency that the ALSD wants to rob me of my hard-earned money. Every year, it seems, they have another "emergency" - past levies have gone towards things that HAD NO DIRECT IMPACT ON EDUCATION. I think they need to trim the fat like the residents have. I make 1/3 of what I earned 4 short years ago, and do not have the ability to pay any more taxes. My money is already cut. I cut out a lot of things I used to enjoy - time for the school district to do the same.

I'd rather pay more and live in a city with services, good roads, and a good school system than be one of those towns that has no police force and all the residents go out and buy guns to police themselves. When housing prices go up the fact that we live in a nice city will help the value of our property too.

For retired senior citizens if this levy passes at least 50% will have to sell their homes. Their is no way that they can pay at least $50 or more a month for a school levy when their our progams to cut. Especially sports naming two (Swim Team and Hockey). Also pay for the Superintendent, Treasure, Administrative Asst. Secretaries, and Transportation Supervisors salaries are a total of $400,000.00 per year.The majority of seniors have lived here at least 30 years or more and have supported levies but with limited income they can no longer support a levy of 9%

Add in the Athletic Director and round it out to an even $500,000 per year!
