Clermont expects few voters

        BATAVIA — With a light ballot of one Williamsburg school levy renewal and no countywide elections, Clermont voter turnout is expected to be low Tuesday.

        Only about 3,000 of the estimated 96,000 registered voters in the county are eligible to vote. There will be two polling locations with seven full voting precincts and two others where only a portion of the precinct will vote.

        The Williamsburg Local School District is asking for a five-year renewal of its current 3-mill operating levy. Because the district has grown slightly, it will take less from each payer to generate the same amount of revenue.

        The owner of a $50,000 home would pay $45.94 annually, a decrease of $9.18 from the current levy. The renewal levy would generate $278,728 per year.

        “The community is super-supportive of the schools,” Williamsburg schools Superintendent Robin Wiley said Thursday. She added that voters will get additional value for the dollar because the district expects to add a science teaching position.

        Forty-two voters from neighboring Brown County, who are part of the Williamsburg school district, also will vote in Clermont because of the light ballot in Brown.
