West Bonner votes to continue levy

Print Article

PRIEST RIVER — Voters across the West Bonner County School District voted to renew a two-year, $3 million supplemental levy March 14. Bonner County officials tallied the vote at 732 in favor, 522 against. Superintendent Paul Anselmo and the school board had contended that the levy would not increase taxes further than they had already, but would simply continue the current supplemental levy. In fact, at a town hall meeting March 1, Anselmo said that taxes would slightly decrease due to increased properties on the tax rolls from Priest Lake.

At the March 15 school board meeting, Anselmo and board members thanked the public for their approval of the supplemental levy. In a statement, Anselmo said “I am very thankful for the support for WBCSD from our wonderful community. I felt pretty confident the levy would pass, but there is always the stress of waiting. I anticipate things continuing to progress in a positive manner.”
