Council supports school tax levy

Fairfield City Council unanimously voted Tuesday night to endorse a school levy on the Nov. 2 ballot. It was the fourth time in three years that the council has endorsed a Fairfield school levy, though each time voters in the Butler County school system have voted them down. Voters will decide on a 4.9-mill operating levy that would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an additional $150 annually in taxes.
