Fairfield Schools pass levy

Voters in Fairfield barely passed a $6.5 million levy for Fairfield City Schools.

The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 house $17 a month.

The levy passed with a vote of 10,714 for to 10,382 against.

If the levy had failed, Superintendent Paul Otten had proposed $7.4 million in cuts for the school district.
