Three Levy Votes Set For Today Five School Districts Hold Trustee Elections

Three North Idaho school districts are holding supplemental levy elections today, and five school districts are conducting trustee elections.

The only district with both a trustee and levy election is St. Maries.

There, voters will decide on a two-year $335,000-per-year levy for general operations, which is a $10,000 reduction from last year’s levy.

Lakeland School District at Rathdrum is asking voters if they want to spend an extra $18,000 in taxes to pay for activity buses. Voters routinely have approved the same levy each year for several years.

The Kootenai Joint School District at Harrison wants two levies; a two-year $175,000-per-year supplemental levy and a $50,000 levy to replace the roof on the high school.

The latter levy is the last in a series of levies for reconstruction at the high school.

The polling places in that election are the Emergency Medical Technician building in Harrison, the Carlin Bay Community Center, Medicine Mountain Grange in Medimont, Harrison Elementary School and the Kirk and Melody Wight residence on Hells Gulch Road.

In Lakeland, polling places are John Brown, Spirit Lake, Garwood and Athol elementary schools, Twin Lakes and Hauser Lake fire stations and the Bayview Community Center.

In St. Maries, polling places are the school district headquarters, the Washington Water Power Co. building, the Emida Community Center, Santa Grange hall, Upriver School and the Benewah Community Center.

St. Maries’ Zone 5 voters who are interested in voting in the trustee race between Tami Holdahl and Michael Stone must vote at the administrative center.

Here are other trustee races and polling places:

In Coeur d’Alene, Zone 3 incumbent Eli Ross is being challenged by Tim Olson. The polling place for that race is Ramsey Elementary School. In Zone 2, Pamela Fink and Larry Rook are challenging incumbent Vern Newby. That polling place is Hayden Meadows Elementary School.

In Post Falls, Zone 2 incumbent Kevin Schneidmiller is running against Don Morgan. That polling place is Ponderosa Elementary School. Ed Adamchak and Robert Hunt are vying for the Zone 5 seat. That polling place is Prairie View Elementary School.

Kellogg has a write-in candidate in Zone 4. Former board member Linda Piekarski is challenging Mark Cowles. The Zone 4 polling place is Pinehurst Elementary. In Zone 2, Ray Faraca is challenging Susan Costa. That polling place is Sunnyside Elementary School.
