"- -- I One-year tax levy for Dayton schools set arThe Dayton School District will have a one-ye operating levy on the June 29 ballot of $452,842.36. The new vote follows defeat of a tax base proposal in the May election of $1,130,506. According to the ballot title the levy is outside the 670 limitation set by the state. The ballot also says the current tax base together with available non-tax revenue is insufficient to provide an education program adequate to meet the needs of the children of the district. The levy will result in no new programs and ~i,~ ~vide essentially the same services as the levy for the .... :=~ ~rent year. If the measure is approved, $391,380.36 of the taxes levied for the 1982-83 fiscal year are eligible for partial state funding. However, $61,462.00 of the taxes levied will be totally financed by local taxpayers without any partial state payment.
