  Original Published: 11/5/2013One of the biggest issues on the November 5 ballot was the Mansfield City Schools 10.1 mills levy for five years. Voters approved the levy request, 54 to 46 percent. The levy will generate $4 million annually for the district. "We are thankful for the support from the community," Garverick said.  Garverick said cuts are imminent even with the passage of the levy. He said to date $4 million in cuts have been made since 2010 and $5 million more in cuts must be made. The board will submit a financial recovery plan by the end of November outlining its plans to prevent a $9 million deficit in 2014 to avoid fiscal emergency.
