Spokane Valley levies passing

Some local school districts are unhappy with last night's levy election results, but the levies of all school districts in the Spokane Valley area appear to be passing. There are more ballots left to count, but election night results are usually a good indicator of the final results. East Valley got a 51.97 percent yes vote, while Central Valley got a more commanding 58.4 percent yes vote. The approval vote for Freeman was 53 percent.

Both the West Valley and Liberty school districts had two levies on the ballot - a regular levy and a technology levy. All four are passing handily. Levies are in important part of any district's budget, so a whole bunch of people are breathing a sigh of relief this morning.
