MEDINA, OH — After some mixed views this year, Medina residents voted to pass a 5.9-mil emergency levy Tuesday night, 58 percent to 42 percent.

The levy will bring security and busing to the district. Also, counselors, teachers and reading intervention educators will be added.

Some worried that recent drama in the district would sway the vote.

On October 28, the board of education voted to suspend Superintendent Randy Stepp without pay. After a state auditor investigation, it was discovered he spent nearly $4,000 of public money illegally.

Dr. Stepp’s suspension without pay is the first step in the termination process. Stepp is suing for defamation and for breech of contract.

As for the board, most members have resigned as a result of the controversy.
