In May, voters will decide whether or not to pass a five-year, 3-mill permanent improvement levy for the Cuyahoga Falls City School district.
The Cuyahoga Falls Board of Education voted Monday to put the issue on the ballot.
If approved, the levy would generate $11.1 million in revenue and cost homeowners $91.88 per year for every $100,000 in valuation, according to Falls schools treasurer David Hoskin.
Safety and technology upgrades would be added to the district this summer if the levy passes, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.
The issue would also cover necessary building maintenance and repairs.
The Board also voted to hire Right Brain Design Group to handle the district's public relations initiatives and marketing strategies.
However, the Cuyahoga Falls Schools Levy Committee will still be responsible for promoting and building awareness around the May levy.
