MONROEVILLE, Ohio: Next month the Monroeville school board will decide if a tax levy measure should be on the November ballot. The tax levy proposal comes after a similar measure failed in May 2009. The November proposal is expected to be the same as the one in May - a 1.5 percent income tax on earned income only. The May proposal failed by 50 votes. The school board will meet on August 5, a day after voters decide on an emergency levy renewal that does not seek new funds. The property tax raises approximately $291,000 annually for the school district.
