      TPS board plans for renewal levy in November

      Toledo Public School officials already have their eyes set on November where they're hoping to renew a levy.

      Wednesday morning the TPS finance committee recommended a 6.5 mill levy which will generate over $13 million dollars for the district in the next five years.

      D 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.

      " I 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.

      T he TPS board says the renewal levy covers basic expenses. The levy recommendation now goes before the full board for reconsideration.
