West Side School District asking for additional funds

<span class=”s1″>In March, Idaho’s West Side School District will ask the area’s patrons to once again vote in support of the district’s annual supplemental levy override.</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>The election, Tuesday, March 12, will be conducted by the Franklin County Clerk’s office.   </span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>“I don’t think the amount has changed since the district was established,” said Assistant Superintendent Spencer Barzee. “It is a $90,000 levy which is the same we have asked for years and years.”</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>The polling place will again be at the West Side High School Library, according to county elections clerk, Camille Larsen.</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>“The money is used for general maintenance and operation of the entire school district,” said Barzee. “That might include caring for anything from furnaces to parking lots. We do our utmost to stretch each dollar that comes to us through the levy.”</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>The measure requires a simple majority to pass. </span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>If approved, it will not increase property taxes. Also, it is not a request for a tax increase.</span>
