Letter: Permanent improvement renewal levy is essential to our schools

The following is a letter to the editor by Ada resident Ben Thaxton.

Dear Ada Community,

I am writing to urge our community to vote in favor of the 5-year Permanent Improvement RENEWAL levy on the November 7, 2023, ballot. This levy RENEWAL is essential for maintaining and improving our public school, which is the foundation of our community.

The permanent improvement levy is a RENEWAL of an existing levy that has been in place for many years. It is NOT a new tax. The levy provides funding for important capital expenses, such as building repairs and renovations, new technology, and safety equipment. A permanent improvement fund helps Ada Schools avoid using general fund revenue for capital expenses, which frees up general fund revenue for educational services for children.

The Ada Lions Club would like to thank the community for making its 2023 mulch sale a success!

The annual mulch sale funds the Lions Club Scholarhip; the scholarship recipients are Ada High School seniors.
