River Valley Local Schools will not return to the ballot for a Feb. 2 special election, according to votes taken at Wednesday’s school board meeting. Two of four present board members voted against placing the emergency operating levy on the ballot after a discussion on the pros and cons of a February attempt. The decision comes about a week after the Nov. 3 election in which 2,491 of 3,807 voters opposed a 4.66-mill, five-year levy.
