A local school district hopes its levy passes during the May special election.

East Muskingum Schools Superintendent Jill Johnson says they have a 1.3 million dollar renewal levy to provide emergency requirments for five years.

"We have continued to use that money for general operating including fuel, electricity and day to day expenses," Johnson said.

The school district says the renewal levy millage did not change.

"As inflation has gone up, we have made internal cuts that have not been large but we have made small cuts so that we could just ask for the same amount of money and not have to go back to the community," Johnson said.

Voting takes place on Tuesday, May 7th . The East Muskingum Levy is one of three issues on the Muskingum County ballot.
