Edison school levy fails

Norwalk Reflector Staff • Nov 6, 2012 at 10:54 PM

The Edison school district levy went down tonight.

Edison Local School District officials were asking voters to approve a 3.50-mill emergency property tax levy.

In Erie County, with all precincts reporting, 2,105 voted against (55 percent), while 1,709 were in favor.

In Huron County, with all of the precincts in but absentee ballots still being counted, 291 were against the levy, while 279 voted in favor. This county's portion of the school district is much smaller than Erie County's, so there wouldn't be enough "yes" votes to off-set the Erie County outcome when all the votes are totaled.

Edison Superintendent Tom Roth indicated the district might try again in the spring, but ultimately the school board will have to decide that.
