Voters in the Zane Trace School District will decide on a renewal levy in November.

Superintendent Richard Spindler says if passed, the 1.4 mill levy will provide funds for current operating expenses for emergency district requirements.
Spindler says if the levy fails, many reductions in personnel will have to be made.
"We still are looking at a little bit of cuts possibly within the next year, but should this levy fail, we will have to probably start making more cuts after January the first," said Spindler.
Spindler says the district is expecting a good response from voters despite today's economy.
"I know that things are tough for a lot of people, but this has passed every time since it was first started in 1982, so it's not an increase on anyone's taxes. Therefore, we're hoping it's going to pass," said Spindler.
Spindler says if the renewal passes, the district can continue to maintain its current personnel and services.
The levy is projected to generate more than $268,000 a year.
