Norwalk schools looking to go back to voters

Will Norwalk City Schools be putting an emergency operating levy or a half-percent income tax on the May ballot?

The school board made the first necessary step to choose one of those two options at its regular meeting Tuesday. If the board didn't make such a resolution, putting a levy on the ballot wouldn't be possible for May because of various deadlines.

"It doesn't commit the board to putting a levy on the ballot in May," Superintendent Dennis Doughty said.

The 5.5-mill emergency operating levy would generate $1.85 million while the additional half-percent income tax would produce $1.7 million. Both levies would last five years.
