Rec commission to be on ballot

Staff writer

Voters in the Marion-Florence school district will be asked in November to approve formation of a recreation commission.

A “yes” vote would permit the district to establish the commission and allow it to levy an annual property tax to support programs. The amount to be levied is not included in the ballot question.

A “no” vote would not provide district-sponsored commission and related activities.

School board members voted during a special meeting Tuesday morning to submit the question to voters.

The resolution states that the program would be for students and adults within the district.

The board earlier approved a letter of understanding to take over a joint recreation program from the city of Marion.
