Greene County Voters Renew Yellow Springs Schools Levy, Reject Xenia Streets Levy

Nov 6, 2018

Greene County voters decided several levy issues Tuesday.

In Yellow Springs, voters overwhelmingly approved a school district-related renewal levy. 

The measure passed 76 percent to 24 percent. The five-year, 1.2-mil renewal levy would fund facilities maintenance in the district. Officials say it will not increase taxes.

Voters in Xenia rejected a levy that would have raised property taxes. The 3.5 mill levy would have generated funding to support the rehabilitation of roads and bridges in the city. 53% of Xenia voters rejected the measure.
