Information shown below: Summary |

An additional tax for the benefit of the Cincinnati City School District, County of Hamilton, Ohio, for the purpose of GENERAL PERMANENT IMPROVEMENTS at a rate not exceeding seven and ninety-five hundredths (7.95) mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to seventy-nine and five tenths cents ($0.795) for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for a continuing period of time, commencing in 2011, first due in calendar year 2012.

Summary Prepared by League of Women Voters of the Cincinnati Area:
The Cincinnati Board of Education voted in August to place a permanent improvement levy of 7.95 mills on the November 8 ballot. If passed, the levy will generate approximately $49.5 million for the Cincinnati Public Schools and will last for a "continuing period of time." The Board president said that these additional funds are to be used for "technology, software, textbooks and other improvements with a life of at least five years." Levy proceeds will not be used for personnel costs.

The levy would mean an increase of $243 annually for the owner of a home valued at $100,000.
