Meeting on Monday night, the Boardman Local School Board voted to place two renewal tax levy issues on the ballot in the May 7 primaries.
The renewals come on the heels of an additional tax levy that was approved by the electorate last November.
The school board voted to place a 5.9-mil renewal issue and a 1.6-mil permanent improvement renewal on the ballot.
The 5.9-mil levy brings about $4.646 million annually into the Boardman Local School District, Supt.. Frank Lazzeri said.
The 1.6-mil levy raises about $821,200 annually and can only be used to fund capital improvements.
