The Permanent Improvement Levy generates $264,038 per year with the funds used solely for items with a life of more than five years, such as repairs and additions to buildings and grounds, buses, etc.

The Current Expenses Levy raises $853,013 per year with the money going into the General Fund.

The district will contract with Squire, Sanders and Dempsey for the ballot language for both renewals.

A special board meeting has been called for 5 p.m. Jan. 27 to approve the ballot language and to place the levies on the ballot.
