Tri-C Board approves Levy for November ballot
CLEVELAND, June 25, 2019: The
Community College (Tri-C®) Board of Trustees voted today to place a
1.9-mill renewal levy with a 0.4-mill increase on the Nov. 5
ballot to sustain Tri-C’s vital educational and economic impact
in Northeast Ohio.
The request asks Cuyahoga County property owners for an
additional investment of $1.17 per month on a $100,000 home.
Collection of the levy would begin in 2020 and run 10 years.
The proposed levy is necessary to keep higher education
affordable and accessible for county residents — a critical need
at a time when jobs increasingly demand a college degree or
“Education is a building block for success,” said Alex
Johnson, president of the College. “This levy is essential
for providing county residents the opportunity to benefit from
the power and value of a Tri-C education.”
Tri-C currently offers the lowest tuition in Ohio while serving
as the community’s leading provider of education. Thousands of
students per year graduate with the skills required to launch
careers with household-supporting wages.
Studies show the impact of investment in Cuyahoga Community
College. For every dollar spent on education at Tri-C, the
College provides $9.40 in economic benefit to Greater Cleveland
“For more than 50 years, Tri-C has enriched the lives of
hard-working members of our community,” said Andrew Randall,
chair of the College’s Board of Trustees. “The results
demonstrate how vital the College is to the success of the
county and its residents.”
