CUYAHOGA FALLS — Voters in the city school district will decide in November whether a 7.9-mill operating levy will be renewed for five more years.

The Board of Education on Wednesday unanimously approved a resolution to place the levy renewal request on the Nov. 3 ballot. It was the second of two steps the board needed to take to put the issue before voters. 

If it’s renewed this fall, the levy would continue generating $5.7 million annually to help pay for operating expenses in the district.

The tax issue would have to be approved on Nov. 3 to ensure uninterrupted collection of those property tax dollars, according to District Treasurer Kristy Stoicoiu.

There are three more levies on the district’s books that will be due for renewal in the next two years. A 9.97-mill levy (which generates $7.2 million each year) will expire in 2021, and a 4.75-mill levy ($3.2 million per year) and the 2017 emergency levy ($3.7 million annually) will both expire in 2022.
