Mt. Healthy Voters Weigh in on School Levy

Starting at 7:30 p.m. votes will be counted to see if enough were cast to pass a tax levy for Mt. Healthy City Schools.

Polls we visited saw a slow stream of voters who wanted to cast their ballot for or against the levy.   Ebony Mixon told Fox 19 that she was an alumnus of Mt. Healthy schools and that her daughter attends now.  She wanted to see the levy pass, to ensure that her daughter gets a good education, as she feels she got in the past.  But Karen Bayer shared that she thought taxpayers in general are "pretty tapped out now" and that the schools should find another way to pursue funding.

If it passes, the levy will bring in close to 3 million dollars per year. An owner of a $100,000 home would be assessed an additional $228 per year to pay for it.
