SIDNEY, Ohio (WDTN) - All around Sidney you'll see signs reading "We Listened. We Acted."
The superintendent says they show the district got the message after its six levy defeats.
By reducing teacher salaries and cutting 100 staff members, the district says it's spending tax dollars more efficiently than before.
But now the district's 9.9 mill levy is expiring.
So to replace it, the district is putting a one percent income tax on the ballot.
2 NEWS asked Superintendent John Scheu about what that switch means for taxpayers.
He says it's a fairer way to go because they levy won't have to be paid for by just property owners.
The money raised would be about $200,000 more than the original property tax levy, but Scheu says the extra money will cover a .8 mill permanent improvement levy that was never renewed.
He tells us the money won't go to waste.
"We feel confident we have acted accordingly and are good stewards of the taxpayers money and living within our means," Scheu says.
The levy will be up for a vote August 6.
The levy it's replacing passed by only one vote in 2009.
