Groveport Madison levy/bond issue receives endorsement

On March 10, Groveport City Council and Mayor Lance Westcamp endorsed passage of Groveport Madison Schools’ levy/bond issue, which will appear on the May 6 ballot.

The five year, 6.68 mill operating levy would generate $4.5 million annually. The $33.3 million, 38-year, 2.24 mill bond issue to build a new high school is coupled with a .5 mill permanent improvement levy. The annual cost for the owner of a $100,000 home for the combined ballot issue would be $312.

If approved, the high school, located at 4475 S. Hamilton Road, would be torn down and a new, $62.9 million, 235,000-square foot high school would be built where the current parking is located using Ohio Schools Facilities Commission funding with the state paying $29.6 million and the local share paying $33.3 million.
