Kings levy may add technology, buses

Enquirer Contributor

        DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP — Renewing a permanent improvement levy would allow Kings Local Schools to upgrade technology, repair schools, air-condition two buildings and buy buses over the next five years.

        The 3-mill levy will appear on the March primary ballot. First approved in 1990 and renewed in 1995, the five-year levy would raise about $1 million annually with collections beginning next January, said Michael Mowery, Kings treasurer. Taxes would not increase if the levy is renewed.

        Several projects to be funded with the $5 million have been identified:

        • $1.5 million to upgrade technology. Each year $300,000 would be used.

        • $575,000 to buy nine to 10 buses

        • $1.75 million to air-condition J.F. Burns Elementary and Kings Junior High, the last district buildings without air-conditioning.

        • $500,000 to upgrade recreation facilities. In the past this fund has paid for upgrading lights at the football field, replacing bleachers and resurfacing gymnasium floors.

        • $675,000 for building repairs, including roof repair/replacement, parking lot paving and maintenance.
