Voters Say 'Yes' to Levies in Five School Districts

Posted By on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 9:13 AM

Officials in five Treasure Valley school districts are breathing sighs of relief this morning after seeing voters approve a series of supplemental levies Tuesday. New spending measures were given the thumbs up in Homedale, Kuna, Nampa, Notus and Wilder school districts.

The tightest margin was in Kuna, where 1,671 voted for a new two-year $6.38 million levy, compared to 1,478 against. The district, which is split between Ada and Canyon counties, saw more Canyon County voters voting "no" but an overwhelming number of Ada County voters saying "yes."

Homedale voters approved a 10-year cooperative service agency levy of $150,000 per year by a 23 percent margin.

Voters in Nampa approved a two-year $3.2 million levy by a 28 percent margin.

Notus voters handily approved two levies, a 10-year plant facility measure of $150,000 per year and another 10-year cooperative service agency levy of $67,777 per year.

Voters in Wilder said "yes" to a new two-year $610,000 levy by a 26 percent margin.
