OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Oregon City School Board has approved a 5.9 Mill emergency tax levy that will appear on the November, 2014 ballot.

Oregon City Schools Superintendent Dr. Lonny Rivera says asking for a levy was the last thing he wanted to do, but it's needed to keep the district running smoothly.

The levy is for operational purposes, designed to ensure the district will be able to employ people to run their current programs.  Dr. Rivera says if the money isn't there, programs will be cut.

The term of levy is five years, and will collect over $2 million per year.  For a person with a $100,000 home, it will cost $207 per year.

"I want to be able to provide stability for the staff that works here, but more importantly to the kids so they know the programs they're used to having will be there," Dr. Rivera said.

The school district recently settled contracts with their bargaining units and, with all of their administration included, no one has taken any base increases on their salaries.

Dr. Rivera says the levy gives voters the chance to see if the school district is actually getting the job done.
