Edison comes up with contingency plans if May levy fails

Edison board of education members said Wednesday they're optimistic their levy in May will pass.

But as a "formality," the board voted to send levy options they would consider for the August ballot to the county auditor, as contingencies should the five-year, 7.9 mills emergency operating levy fail on May 7.

"It really is just a a formality," treasurer Anne Arnold said.

If the May levy fails, the August options would need to be certified by the end of the day on May 8 -- the day after the May election. If voters turn down the May levy, the board will choose one of four options at a special meeting 7 a.m. May 8.

A story about those options, as well as other matters discussed at Wednesday's school board meeting, was published in Thursday's Norwalk Reflector.
