Levy for Indian Creek Schools on November ballot

Passing the 6.49 mill bond would allow for funds to build a new high school at the current site, a new elementary school at the current Bantam Ridge site, and renovate Hills Elementary.

Community members in Wintersville are asking for residents’ support in passing a levy in November.

The levy involves building new -- and renovating old -- schools in the Indian Creek School District.

Everything you need to know is inside the Crossroad Christian Church, where they’ve begun a campaign called “Mine Plus Nine.”

"What I really liked about this campaign when the school district presented it, and why I got involved, was they didn't just want to build one school, they said let's just do everything we need to do,” said Jeff Greco, chairman of the Indian Creek Advisory Council. “We'll do it once, we'll do it right, and then we'll have new schools. There won't be anything to add on, no new taxes nothing to add on for the next who knows, hopefully 20-25-30 years."

Passing the 6.49 mill bond would allow for funds to build a new high school at the current site, a new elementary school at the current Bantam Ridge site, and renovate Hills Elementary.

Thursday and Friday, voters can stop by the church to help get the word out. There you can pick up yard signs, absentee ballots, and any other information you would need.

Inside the church, a wall covered with the names of 4,000 voters in the district. The goal is to come in, pick nine names, put them on your list and call them.

"And if we get 100 people to do that, you know we're going to be calling and personally reminding and inviting several thousand people to get out vote," Greco said.

You can stop by the church on Thursday until 7 p.m., and on Friday from 7 a.m. to midnight.

“The public schools are social centers,” Greco said. “They are where things go on, where people meet, and as the church is involved with the community, it's important that our kids have good facilities in every district.”
