Van Buren Schools to host meeting to discuss levy survey results

After its May bond issue was voted down, Van Buren School District is seeking input before deciding whether another levy should appear on the November ballot.

The district is hosting a meeting Tuesday night to discuss the results of a survey it gave the community a chance to take throughout the past month.

In May, Van Buren residents voted down a $29.3 million levy with 853 votes, or 62 percent, voting against it, according to the Hancock County Board of Elections. The bond issue had 527 voters, or 38 percent, in favor.

The survey to be discussed at the 6:30 p.m. Tuesday meeting in the district’s community room could result in the levy’s reappearance on the November ballot or a different initiative altogether, Superintendent Tim Myers has said.
