To the Editor,
This November the voters of the Tipp City School district will have the opportunity to show their support of the schools by approving the renewal of a 2 mill permanent improvement levy. As you may well know, renewing a levy means NO NEW taxes! What is different about this levy is that with voter approval the levy becomes a “continuing” levy; the district’s voters have been renewing this levy for over 50 years.
Permanent Improvement means equipment/materials (buses, technology, etc.) that lasts at least five years can be purchased with these funds. Permanent Improvement can also include renovations and repairs to buildings.
I am a firm believer that Tipp City Schools provide a quality education to our children. Bob and I were raised in this community. We chose to raise our daughters here, primarily due to the education available to them. The old saying is “It takes a village to raise a child”; in Tipp City, it should be “It takes a community to educate a child.”
Vote “yes” on Issue 3!
