Washington Court House City Schools is coming to voters in the district for an earned income tax levy on the August 4th special election. The 1% earned income tax levy would generate approximately $1.2 million per year, for 7 years, if approved by voters.
Paul LaRue, who taught for more than three decades before retirement. He is currently serving as a member of the levy campaign for Washington CH City Schools. LaRue says while the special election is August 4th, early voters can cast their ballot now.
Two previous attempts to get an operation levy approved as failed in the last two years. While the voters approved a levy to build the current Washington CH City School campus, the district has not seen an operation tax increase in 29 years. Early voting has already started for the August 4th special election.
Individuals on social security are among those that would be exempt from paying the increase, if it is approved.
This is the third attempt in the last couple of years, Washington CH City Schools has sought approval of an operations fund tax levy increase.
