Waterloo school district's 5.9-mill levy has passed by 25 votes -- 968 to 943 -- according to complete but unofficial results announced by the Portage County Board of Elections on Tuesday.
The 5-year levy is to raise $939,557 per year. Voter turnout was 32.4 percent in the district which covers Atwater and Randolph townships in southern Portage County.
Only 32.43% of the eligible voters showed up to vote. 1804 voted/5562 could have voted. Over two thirds of the voting community stayed home.. Just a suggestion to Waterloo, maybe a public seminar on civics to compliment the seminar on bullying would be helpful. I hope civics is still being taught. Shalom
