Lakota voters will decide the fate of their school district’s latest levy request this November.
School board members voted in special session Monday to place a 5.5-mill continuous levy on the ballot — requesting 3.5 mills for operating expenses and 2.0 mills for permanent improvements.
The millage would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $192 annually, said treasurer Jenni Logan. The levy would generate $13.8 million in new revenue for Lakota Local Schools each year.
Logan said the district received $77.6 million this year in real estate taxes through an existing 33.5 mills of effective millage.
