St. Marys school district voters to decide tax levy
Primary 2014
  ST. MARYS - Voters in the school district on Tuesday will decide whether to renew a levy that brings in $1.84 million annually.
The 5-year, 6.8-mill property tax levy was first passed in 2004 and expires at the end of the year. The levy helps fund day-to-day operations at the district.
If passed, a homeowner with property valued at $100,000 will continue to pay about $214 per year.
Treasurer Tom Sommer has said the district's five-year forecast will avoid a deficit if the renewal levy is approved. If not, the district likely would need to make further cuts or face deficit spending by fiscal year 2015 with the depletion of cash funds by fiscal year 2017, he said.
St. Marys residents also will vote on a liquor option for Sunday sales and on-premises consumption sales from 10 a.m.-12 a.m. at the St. Marys Eagles Auglaize Aerie 767.
