Wood Lane will try for a 3.5-mill operating levy in November.
The five-year property tax is expected to bring in an additional $9.572 million to the program which offers services for students with special needs from birth through age 22; employment, therapeutic programs, and activities for older adults, as well has housing options.
The Wood County Board of Developmental Disabilities, which oversees Wood Lane School and Industries as well as Residential Services, voted on the move at its meeting Monday.
According to Superintendent Melanie Stretchbery, the program will have a general operating fund balance of $7 million at the end of this year, down from $12.4 million in December 2012.
The program has an annual operating budget of $27 million.
