Five-year plan would raise property taxes $13 a month on average

Voters will be asked to consider a five-year levy in November, designed to pay for more teachers and updated books and learning materials.
The "local option" levy proposal was approved unanimously by the Portland School Board on Monday.
If voters approve the measure, taxes would be collected beginning in November 2007; it would provide the district $33 million in the first year and would result in $41.6 million in 2011-12, the levy's last year.
