Tiffin, Ohio — The $6.9 million property tax operating levy for Tiffin City Schools has failed, according to unofficial canvass results released from Tuesday’s primary election.
1,698 votes (71.17%) were against the levy, while 688 (28.83%) were in favor.
The last time the district went to the voters for a new operating levy was 2012. Operating levy funds go into the general fund of the district to pay for the day-to-day operational expenses of the school district. Those expenses include the operation of the school buildings, athletics, performing arts, supplies, staff salaries and benefits.
The property tax would have been paid by homeowners in the district in accordance with the value of the home.
