Acting at the request of the superintendent, the Trimble Local School Board is moving to put a levy on the ballot in May.

The levy is for permanent improvements in the amount of five mills and “for a continuing period of time.”

The Board of Education approved a resolution last night to start the levy process.

Final action is expected in January.

Trimble Superintendent Kim Jones requested the levy to pay for roof repairs and other improvements the district can’t afford with its current level of income.

A five mill levy would generate about $190,000 a year.

The last time the district went to the voters was in November and they turned down a five mill proposal 54 to 46 percent.
