Board to vote on proposed levy

Print Article

PRIEST RIVER — The West Bonner County School District is considering a two-year maintenance and operations supplemental levy in the amount of $3 million per year.

This is the same amount as the current two-year levy, which expires this year. WBCSD Superintendent Paul Anselmo said the levy rate will go down again, however, due to the sale of lots at Priest Lake.

The board is also considering a vote to make the levy permanent, he said, as the district has met the criteria for a permanent supplemental override. Idaho school districts become eligible for the override after seven consecutive years of voter-approved levies that account for more than 20 percent of the district’s general fund.

“This would allow the district stability and not have to reopen wounds in the community every two years to pass a levy,” Anselmo said. “We can focus on the important task of educating our students.”

The board will vote on the proposed levy during the Jan. 16 meeting at 6 p.m. in the district office, 134 Main St, Priest River.

If approved by the board, the levy will go to voters on March 12.
