ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The Forest Hills Board of Education has approved the first of two required resolutions to place a 4.7-mill operating levy on the November ballot.

The levy would provide necessary funding for staff, textbooks and supplies, the board said in a release Tuesday.

The levy would cost approximately $164.50 per $100,000 of home market value, according to the release.

The district has stretched the three-year levy passed in 2012 to last seven years, the release said. The district made $1.5 million in budget cuts this year from administrative, staff and operations restructuring to extend the 2012 levy.

Later this summer, the board is expected to hold the second vote, which would officially place the new levy on the ballot.
