Avon Lake School Levy Supporters Hosting Feb. 5 Meeting

Feb, 5 meeting will provide information and organize supporters.

Supporters of the proposed 8.28–mill May 7 levy are hosting an informational “kickoff” meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Avon Lake High School Commons.

The evening will be used to gather and help spread information and begin arranging help and support for the levy.

Levy supporters have formed a Facebook page to provide information on the 10-year levy. According to the page, The Merples--the exclusive group of the Avon Lake Chorale--will attend the meeting.

Last week, the Avon Lake Board of Education voted to proceed with a 10-year, $6.5 million emergency levy.

The annual cost per $100,000 valuation is $253.58.

A 9.04-mill levy was defeated in November by 675 votes.

Just because someone doesn't want to pay more taxes doesn't mean they are grumpy, old or anything else other than fed up with new taxes and mis-spent money.

For the gentleman that wants all seniors to buy houses in Sheffield Lake because they do not want to pay taxes. Why stop there, also another gentleman says that Avon Lake has Hud housing in Beachpark which is also Seniors. Suggestion change the boundry lines and give up that part of Avon Lake to Sheffield Lake. When you are done getting rid of all the seniors then you should then finish the cleanse. Rid the city of all non-whites, gays and lesbians. Then if the levy goes down you will only have to blame your own kind

Im all for paying city taxes for our kids education. Ill even donate $500~1000 , if students are forced to PAY TO PLAY. One little BUT...Who's holding the school board accountable to prevent wasteful spending of funds? When was the last Treasury audit? You have my vote, if things were transparent more people maybe more accepting to the levy.

Todays PD the school district is getting $1.3 million more this year. Also has the board looked at everything to cut. Could make more cuts in the sports programs, example eliminate the swim and hockey team. You have to pay out for ice and pool time to have these teams. I am sure that there are other teams also that could be eliminated. Eliminate the two Asst.Principals at the high school and also at Lear Wood. Reduce busing and make more children walk or have parents drive. Cut to the bone everything not just a few items
