NORTH BALTIMORE - The North Baltimore school board took the first step Tuesday toward putting a long-standing renewal levy before voters, again.
The 8.0-mill levy is estimated to bring in about $500,000 annually. The levy helps support an $8 million annual budget, said Treasurer Eve Baldwin.
The levy, which goes for operational expenses, has been on the books for more than 20 years.
Superintendent Marlene North said the renewal is needed for keeping the district at its existing service levels for activities, staff and other expenses.
"I hope our community likes what's happening here at North Baltimore and continues to support it," North said.
Board members voted unanimously, 5-0, on the resolution. The Wood County Auditor's Office will next certify the tax valuation of the school district and the amount of revenue the renewal levy would generate.
Also at Tuesday's meeting:
• Board members went into executive session to discuss personnel. No action was expected.
• Heard the high school band will play at a Cleveland Cavs game on March 29.
