Kellogg, Wallace Also Plan Levy Elections

Sun., April 30, 1995

Kellogg and Wallace school districts hold supplemental levy elections Tuesday, as well.

Kellogg schools need $689,000, say school officials. It is a one-year levy. Wallace officials want voters to approve $675,000 for two years so they don’t have to hold an election next year.

Wallace decreased its amount by $13,000 from last year. Kellogg increased its levy by $90,000.

Although the Kellogg levy amount is increasing, the total amount of local school taxes for the district is decreasing by about $70,000, said Kellogg schools superintendent Larry Curry.

Wallace School District expects a decrease in local school taxes of about $119,000.

The decrease is a result of a new law that gives property owners a tax break by placing new, lower limits on maintenance and operation levies.

Polls are open from noon to 7 p.m. in both school districts. People may register to vote at the polls, but must provide proof of residence.

Polling places in Kellogg are Sunnyside Elementary, Pinehurst Elementary, Smelterville City Hall and Canyon Elementary.

In Wallace, the polling places are Wallace Intermediate School, Osburn Primary School, Silverwood Good Samaritan Center in Silverton and the Prichard Fire Hall.
