Riverside levy passes by 11 votes


Riverside School District’s levy has passed by 11 votes, according to the Spokane County Elections Office.

The vote had been deadlocked since April 18, with just a few more ballots to count. The election was certified Thursday.

This was the second time the district had asked voters to approve a levy since February. If it had failed, the district would have had to wait until next year before proposing another one.

The measure will raise about $2.9 million per year and cost home owners about $3.42 per $1,000 assessed value.
