The Milton-Union Board of Education voted in the spring to place a 3.9 mill permanent improvement renewal levy on the ballot on November 3, 2020. This is a 5-year renewal levy that first passed in February 1991 and last passed in November 2015. It will not increase taxes.
The funds generated by the levy are used to repair, maintain and replace capital assets such as buses, technology, security cameras and building structural needs. By using permanent improvement funds to upgrade and maintain the building’s HVAC automation system, general fund operating expenditures for utilities are lower than State and Miami County averages. With the continual increase in operational costs and decrease in budgets, it is more important than ever to use permanent improvement funds effectively.
