Two Marion School District Levy Implementation measures will be on the August 14, 2012 ballot in the school district of Marion County.

The school board seeks to implement two temporary levies set at a rate of $.50 per $1,000 of assessed value for four years on both levies. The first levy would go towards capital improvements for the schools and the second would go towards operational costs. The county commission had not wanted to place the measures on the ballot but Florida law stipulates that if the School board approves the measures they choose when to place the measures for a vote. County lawyers noted that if the commission had voted against placing the measures on the ballot they would have ended up in court likely paying large court fees. The schools noted that the money would be used to upgrade facilities and pay for school needs.[1]
