CCS Millage Committee Met for First Time on Monday
April 28, 2020 -- The Columbus City Schools Millage Committee met for the first time on Monday evening, gathering virtually through an online video streaming service. The public meeting was streamed live on the District’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The committee is tasked with bringing a recommendation to the Board of Education regarding a possible levy or bond issue for the November 2020 ballot.
The Millage Committee had been scheduled to begin its meetings on March 12, but the start of the meetings was pushed back to April 27 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding stay-at-home orders.
The committee is scheduled to meet each of the next three Mondays -- May 4, 11, and 18. All meetings will be held from 5:30-7:30 p.m. and will be streamed to Facebook and YouTube.
This Millage Committee was officially created from Board Resolution 19-15-390 during the June 18, 2019, regular business meeting:
“The Columbus City Schools’ Board of Education, hereby charges the Millage Committee with reviewing the strategic plan, academic needs, operational requirements and financial condition of the District and make a recommendation to the Board of Education on the appropriateness of a levy and/or bond question, including form and amount, to be placed on the November 2020 general election ballot.”
The Millage Committee will evaluate and discuss millage amounts for a potential operating levy, bond issue, and/or capital improvements levy. The committee will dissolve upon the completion and delivery of its recommendations to the Board of Education.
