West Clermont Local School District operating levy rejected

CINCINNATI -- Voters rejected a proposed 5.8 mill operating levy, that was expected to generate $7.2 million annually for the West Clermont Local School District.

There were 6,604 votes for the levy (44 percent) and 8,404 against it (56 percent).

Before its rejection Tuesday, the district promised to use the funds to restore art, music and physical education classes at district elementary schools, provide additional busing and restore kindergarten classes to a full schedule.

The owner of a $100,000 home would have had to pay an additional $204 annually in taxes.

This is the fourth time the levy has been rejected.
