Boundary Voters To Decide Levy Today

From Staff And Wire Reports

Boundary County School District will ask voters today for enough additional property tax dollars to keep schools operating as they are.

If the $439,000 levy fails, district officials say, the likely result will be school closures or double-shifting. Textbooks would be bought every seven years instead of every five, and funding for sports would be further cut back. A teaching position also would be cut.

Voting will be from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at all schools except the junior high. Residents may vote at any polling place.

A simple majority is needed to pass the one-year levy. If it passes, a person with a $60,000 home on a $10,000 lot would pay $42 in additional taxes.
