Edison levy basis clarified

To the editor:

This is an FYI to the voters in the Edison Local School District. The 5.9-mill, five-year levy that is on the ballot for operating expenses on May 6 will be based on 35 percent of the market value of your home, not 100 percent as previously reported in a letter to the editor.

You can find the assessed value by going to the Jefferson County tax website (www.jeffersoncountyoh.com/OnLineServices/RealEstateSearch/tabid/199/Default.aspx)

Please make sure you have the accurate facts before making a decision on this issue.

Preserve and protect the Edison Local School District – vote “yes.”

The Wildcat community appreciates your support.
