Voters in the Lakewood City School district overwhlemingly passed a 3.9-mill new continuing levy today — to the tune of 68 percent of the vote.
The continuing operating levy, called Issue 14 on the ballot, will generate about $3.33 million each year for the Lakewood City Schools. The levy would bring in less money the first year, since it would only be in effect for half the year.
Including homestead exemptions, the operating levy would cost owners of a $100,000 home $10 per month. Operating levies are used to pay for regular expenses, like salaries and classroom materials, in the school district.
District officials have said that the 6.9-mill levy passed in 2009 has been “wiped out” by cuts made by the state.
