NORTHWOOD — There were only 20 people there, but overwhelmingly they supported Northwood Schools trying again in May to pass tax issues for a new school.
The board of education held a community meeting Tuesday to learn how voters feel about going back to the ballot in May for support for $21.46 million in tax dollars to build a new preK-12 school on the Lemoyne Road campus.
The issues failed by two votes in November.
The Ohio Schools Facilities Commission would pay 35 percent of the $33.02 million cost of the new school, or $11.55 million.
Northwood voters were asked in November to support a combined 0.25-percent earned income tax and a 4.9-mill property tax. The taxes would have paid for a new 130,000-square-foot school that would have opened in 2016.
The plan also called for Olney Elementary, Lark Elementary and Northwood Elementary to be torn down, and just the gymnasium and auditorium saved of the high school.

The Wood County District Public Library Board of Trustees has posthumously named David C. Miller the recipient of this year's Legacy of 1875 Award.
Miller, who was editor of The Sentinel-Tribune until his death in May of this year, had served on the WCDPL Board of Trustees from 1991 to 1996 and went on to serve public libraries on the state and national level as well as at Bowling Green State University in the years that followed.
The trustees made the announcement during the WCDPL's annual Volunteer Recognition Breakfast on Tuesday, where Miller's widow, Judy, accepted the award, a clock set within a book.
The Legacy of 1875 Award was created in 2009 by the county's library board to recognize "significant contributions to the library in the spirit of the many people who established and sustained this library through the years."
BGSU to freeze tuition PDF Print E-mail

Students will pay the same amount to attend Bowling Green State University next academic year as they did this year.
The university announced this morning a freeze on tuition, general fees and room and board for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Making sure a BGSU education remains affordable has been a watchword for President Mary Ellen Mazey. This is seen as a major step toward achieving that.
"College affordability is a national issue," she said. "It is a major issue particularly here at BGSU."
Many BGSU students, she noted, are the first in their families to attend college.
In the press release announcing the move, Mazey noted that: "Rising student debt is a concern for every one right now."
The tuition and fees for Ohio students will remain at $10,606 for the academic year, and $17,914 for out-of-state students. The cost of room and board depends on the dorm a student decides to live in and what meal plan is selected. The least expensive options would be $8,244.

Some consumers and board members of the Connection Center, a clubhouse for adults with severe or on-going mental illness, pleaded with the Wood County Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services Board on Monday to keep the center in downtown BG. They say the clubhouse is centrally located, allows for socialization of consumers and gives those with mental illness a public presence.
The Connection Center is operated by Behavioral Connections, but the ADAMHS Board pays Behavioral Connections to do so.
The consumers and board members who addressed the board on Monday said they were concerned about the possibility of having the center relocated to the former Varsity Lanes bowling alley on South Main Street. They want to keep their clubhouse, which was established in 1999, at 194 S. Main St.
