A renewal of a five-year, 1.5-mill permanent improvement levy for Clyde-Green Springs Exempted Village School District was approved by voters Tuesday.
According to unofficial totals, 3,015 voters approved the levy and 2,522 voters rejected it.
"We are thrilled to have won by as much as we did," Superintendent Gregg Elchert said.
The annual cost to the owner of a $100,000 home is $21.79.
The cost to a person who is 65 or older with the homestead exemption is $16.49, he said.
Elchert said if it didn't pass, the district would lose about $30,000 in state reimbursement because as long as it is a renewal, the state continues to reimburse the district for some of the loss of tangible personal property tax.
Elchert said the levy generated $230,000 last year, and he thinks it will be slightly less this year.
The money will be used for school bus and van purchases, instruments for high school band, textbooks and maintaining up-to-date technology, Elchert said.
