Tuesday was the May 7 primary election. Voters in a number of Miami Valley counties decided school levies at the ballot box.
In Greene County, voters approved two school levies, including a new 6.15-mills emergency five-year levy for Beavercreek Schools operating expenses.
Before the election, Beavercreek officials had warned district layoffs would be needed if the levy failed. A similar ballot measure failed to pass last fall. The new levy is expected to cost the owner of a $100,000 home roughly $215 more a year.
