Canfield School Board Votes to Put $64 Million Tax on November Ballot in Canfield, Ohio

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) — Canfield voters will once again be asked to allocate more money for their schools as another tax measure is voted on in November.

The Canfield School Board voted unanimously Wednesday night to place the tax on the November ballot. This time, the board is asking for $64 million, most of which would go toward replacing the 12-year-old high school — although $12 million would go toward renovations at two elementary schools and a high school.


Over the past two years, Canfield voters rejected taxes of $108 million and $105 million.

“I know our people support Canfield. I understand that 100 percent, but I think $100 million was just too much for the people I talked to,” Canfield Superintendent Joe Knoll said.

Knoll said the tax would cost about $3.7 million and would last for 35 years, though he did not know how much it would cost per $100,000 of valuation.
