  • PPEL Defeat A Setback For East Mills

    MALVERN - East Mills School District voters have rejected a levy referendum that would have generated $400,000 in new revenue for the school district.
    The district had sought a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) increase of $1.34 per $1,000 of taxable valuation for a 10-year period. The district currently has a 33 cent per $1,000 PPEL in place.

    On Tuesday, Sept. 9, voters said no to that increase by a 403-to-345 margin. The referendum required a simple majority to pass.
