West Clermont to place levy on ballot

With little discussion, the West Clermont Board of Education has passed a resolution to return the $53 million bond levy to voters in a special Feb. 6 election.

The Nov. 20 unanimous vote on the resolution has directed board Treasurer Alana Cropper to submit the resolution to the Clermont County Board of Elections.

The Board is unwilling to give up on the bond issue because the margin of defeat was less than one percent (9,959 for, 10,039 against).

“We have nearly 10,000 voters who support us,” said Superintendent Gary Brooks. “We have both the momentum and the will to continue this cause for the benefits of our students and our community.”
