Monroe County School District Levy Continuation (January 2012)
This measure was approved
- YES 9,869 (74.6%)
- NO 3,358 (25.3%)
This measure sought to continue the current school levy which is set at a rate of .5 mills for a further four years in order to continue to pay for operational costs in the school district. This money will actually be shifted from capital outlay projects to the operations budget for the schools. This measure was previously asked in 2008 and was approved by a large margin. District officials noted that without the continuation of this levy school programs and services would have needed to be cut in order to maintain the budget.
