Geneva Area City Schools
Permanent Improvement Levy
November 5, 2019 ~ Issue #32
These are the Facts…
This is NOT A NEW TAX and is NOT A TAX INCREASE!
It is a RENEWAL of an existing 0.85 mill 5-year Permanent Improvement Levy.
This same tax has been providing needed funds for 60 years (since 1959).
The Geneva Area City Schools must maintain over 81 million dollars worth of buildings and grounds.
NOTE: This will be the District's final opportunity to pass this RENEWAL LEVY.
If the levy fails, a new levy will cost the taxpayers more since the 12.5 % exemption
will no longer be available (the exemption and other cost reducing factors are
only available on the current renewal levy)
In the past, this levy has provided for…
Tennis court repairs and other field upgrades and maintenance
Security cameras for transportation and buildings
Equipment purchases (maintenance tractors, trailers and other items)
Energy efficient lighting updates
Parking lot maintenance
Painting and renovations
In the next five years , the funds generated by this important levy will continue to fund improvements like the items listed above in our district. Don’t Forget to VOTE on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019
