Toledo Public School officials already have their eyes set on November where they're hoping to renew a levy.
TPS finance committee recommended a 6.5 mill levy which will generate over $13 million dollars for the district in the next five years.
istrict officials say the money is needed especially with state cuts in education and board members want to remind voters an important fact about this levy.
t's important to understand it's not a new tax, it's a renewal.
So whatever a citizen was paying, that's what they'll continue to pay," explains TPS board member Bob Vasquez.
TPS board says the renewal levy covers basic expenses. The levy recommendation now goes before the full board for reconsideration.
