Board members Dave Secrest, Ron Ludwig and Nicole Pavoris voted yes. Board Vice President Jason Blake and members Rosemary Kurtz and Amy Blazier voted no. Board President Adam Guss cast the tie-breaking yes vote.
The board followed that with a unanimous vote to abate $1.2 million in debt service from the levy, which drops the levy request from $75,795,782 to $74,595,782.
The district estimates that with the $1.2 million abatement, the tax levy request that was approved Tuesday night will mean a 0.79 percent increase from the previous year, which is less than the rate of inflation.
