Physical Plant Levy Up for Renewal Next Month

A question on the school board ballot in Knoxville next month will ask residents to continue help funding physical improvements at the school. The 67-cent physical plant levy is up at the end of fiscal year 2015. Superintendent Dr. Randy Flack says the ballot measure would extend that levy by 10 years. He tells KNIA/KRLS News that it’s very important money for the district, as the levy is how they pay for things like transportation equipment, roof replacement, boiler and cooling tower repairs, and more. He says it’s received terrific support from voters in the past, and he hopes it does again.
