Taxpayers in St. Clairsville will be asked to weigh in on a $79.8M School Levy


St. Clairsville Schools will be asking voters to approve a big investment in their future.

They have placed a school building levy on the November 6th ballot. It is to raise $79,800,000 to create a brand new master campus. It would include a new high school, a  new fine arts building, and a new elementary school.

It would keep and renovate their current connector building.

“If you take a walk through our facilities, the needs are obvious. We have a lack of space to accommodate our numbers and just to put it in perspective my daughter would be attending the same school that her great-grandfather attended school in,” said Build St. C Levy Co-chair, Sara Myser.

It will take four to five years to build and would be built in multiple phases. Students would be relocated to different buildings during the process.

Here is how the proposal would affect your finances, the total levy would be for $79.8.

If you have a property value of $100,000 it would cost you $25 per month, which would add up to $300 per year.

Voters will have the final say on the levy on November 6th in the General election.
