DAYTON – West Side School District’s annual supplemental levy override election will be held this Tuesday, March 11. A plant-facility levy will also be conducted at the same time.
The elections this year will be conducted by the Franklin County Clerk’s office. A law, passed three years ago by the Idaho Legislature, places the county clerk’s office in charge of all elections in the county and includes all school district, city, fire and library district elections, among others.
Camille Larsen, county elections clerk, said polling places for the override election will be at the West Side High School Library, the Clifton Community Center and the LDS Church in Weston.
“Polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Residents need to go to the voting precinct where they are registered,” she said. “Absentee voting is on-going. Anyone with questions about the election can contact our office.”
School officials are asking patron support of a $90,000 override. The five-year plant facility levy raises $40,000 per year for five years. Only a simple majority is needed for the measures to pass.
Superintendent Spencer Barzee emphasized the district is asking exactly the same amount of monies it has in the past and passage of the levies will not increase property taxes for West Side patrons.
