Troy City Schools pass levy renewal

TROY — Troy City School district residents voted 63 percent in favor of the district’s five-year 5.8-mills levy renewal.

The 5.8-mills levy generates $3.4 million per year for the district. The levy was last renewed in 2011. According to unofficial results, there were 5955 votes for the levy; 3433 against the levy as of press time.

“We are just thankful the people continue to support us,” said Doug Trostle, president of the Troy City School Board of Education.

“We work hard for the residents of Troy and the students in Troy. We try to be fiscally responsible. We are happy and pleased and proud that the community supports us,” said Joyce Reives, vice president of the Troy City School Board of Education.

This levy costs a $100,000 homeowner approximately 20 cents a day. The levy was first passed in 1996 and will not increase taxes, according to the district.
