‘No’ vote needed to end the non-stop increases

Print Article

March 12 is the day to vote on the proposed Lake Pend Oreille School District levy, which is for the staggering sum of $15,767,484. It is intended to cover 2013 and 2014 with $7,883,7442 each.

The levy presentations given by the school district omit the fact that this is, once again, a record amount for their levy. But itís quite easy to verify on the public finance section of the Idaho Department of Educationís website. There, youíll find LPOSD levy amounts dating back to 2000. In that year, the levy was a ďmereď $1,260,000.

Since then, LPOSDís levies have been on an uninterrupted upward trajectory culminating in the current proposed amount of $7,883,742. Compared to 2011, thatís a 15.5-percent increase. Compared to 2000, itís an increase of more than 600 percent.

When is this going to stop? Whenever enough people choose to vote no on this levy.
