Jane Q. Citizen: Back in the 1990’s when Post Falls went through a lot of upheaval in the school district and couldn’t pass a bond levy for anything I recall a controversy when the ballots were locked up in the school overnight before being counted and then passed by one or two votes. The fox should never be allowed to guard the henhouse, no matter which taxing entity it is.
DFO: Idaho’s school districts are attracting discontent by staging levies and bonds at odd times of the year rather than consolidating them with primary and general elections. Comments to HBO today by Dan of the County indicate that people are confused about the process.
Question: Is it time for the school district to consolidate its levy, bond and trustee elections with one of the major general election dates?
