Fairborn voters have passed a 2.95-mill bond levy for city schools. The funding would go toward replacing the city’s elementary and middle school buildings -- at a cost to taxpayers of about $103 more a year for every $100,000 in property value. The levy’s passage also means the state will cover nearly half of the $51 million project.

In Xenia, voters rejected a 3.9 mill levy that would have raised money to replace the city’s middle and high school buildings with one new building.
