Levy vote change

The Eastwood school board, in a special meeting Monday, voted to rescind a previous vote to place a continuous permanent improvement levy on the November ballot for renewal.

Instead, the board plans to seek renewal of the 2-mill levy for five years.

Brent Welker, school superintendent, said the board and administration heard from several residents who’ve been supportive of district funding but had reservations about “forever” levies.

“Since the levy expires in November, we have no margin for error or controversy,” Welker said in his community newsletter. “You spoke. We listened.”

Welker said the effective collection rate of the levy is 1.1 mills. It funds capital projects such as building and bus maintenance.

Dave Michel, Eastwood treasurer, said the levy generates about $265,000 annually.

The board had voted on June 27 to seek renewal as a continuous issue.
