Painesville City Local School board talks levy, superintendent search
The Painesville City Local School board met Monday to discuss next steps on two important issues.
The district will seek a renewal levy next year and has taken the first step toward placing it on the ballot.
The renewal levy will not come as a tax increase to district residents, but a renewal of a 6.06-mill levy, which has an effective millage of 4.4-mills, according to the district.
The treasurer will partner with the Lake County Auditor to determine how much revenue the levy will generate before bringing the motion before the school board again for final approval.
The district also heard from search groups Finding Leaders and the Ohio School Boards Association about the upcoming superintendent search.
It is not yet determined when the board will make a decision of which firm to use, if either, said Board President Gerald D. Kalb.
The district will also seek a new treasurer to replace Sherri Samac, who has served the district while at the same time serving the Lake County Educational Service Center.
Samac's contract expires in January, but she will remain with PCLS until a permanent replacement is found, she said.
