Breakdown: How Levy Dollars Will Be Used By the Cuyahoga Falls School District

If approved, the district's permanent improvement levy would generate $11.1 million in revenue. Take a look at how the district will use that money over the next few years.

Cuyahoga Falls residents should have a clearer picture about how their tax dollars would be spent after Superintendent Todd Nichols gave a breakdown of levy dollars Monday night.

If approved, the district's five-year, 3-mill levy permanent improvement levy would generate $11.1 million in revenue and cost homeowners $91.88 per year for every $100,000 in valuation.

Nichols presented the Cuyahoga Falls Board of Education that night with a breakdown of how the levy dollars would be spent, from building to building, starting in 2014 and running through 2018.

"As you can see, in the first three years, it is heavy on technology, heavy on things we can take with us, heavy on things that are our most-immediate needs, like safety/security, technology, the curriculum," Nichols said.

He said the district will continue to promote the levy through May, and he is prepared to talk to anyone who has questions.

"These are immediate needs," Nichols said. "And let me be real clear: These things represent things we have done without and will continue to do without should this levy not pass."

Take a look below to see the breakdown.

Sales taxes share the burden? It's surprising you would think that, since sales taxes are regressive in nature.

Attacking and calling people stupid works well when having a reasonable discussion. /snark
