Our district is at the end of a levy cycle. The last levy passed was a three-year levy in 2004 that has lasted until now. Reductions in state funding and the elimination of the tangible personal property tax replacement payments are contributing to an additional need for money.What will happen if the levy fails? Our district has cut $1.1 million from the budget over the last two years. If the levy does not pass in 2011 our district will pursue another levy and also reevaluate the current programs offered.
