The time has come for Lexington Schools to seek renewal of a long-standing operating levy. The school board started the process Wednesday night of putting the issue on the May sixth primary election ballot. The five-year, 7.9 mill levy was first passed in 1999, then renewed twice over the next ten years. Superintendent Mike Ziegelhofer says the renewal levy would continue generating $2.7-million a year, and would not be a tax increase. He says keeping this revenue coming in is an essential part of Lexington Schools' budget, and losing it would force deep cuts. The Lexington school board has not given any thought to spending reductions, because it has three opportunities next year to win passage of the levy; in May, and if necessary, in August and November.
