Edison Local Levy Fails

RICHMOND — Voters in the Edison Local School District today turned down a 9.45-mill operating levy — the third time such a measure has failed at the polls.

The levy would have provided for “day-to-day operations,” according to Superintendent Bill Beattie.

Unofficial vote totals released by the Jefferson County Board of Elections late Tuesday indicated 1,593 residents voted in favor of the levy, while 2,074 cast ballots against it.
