Post Falls to seek bond issue, supplemental levy in March

The Post Falls School District will go to voters with two ballot measures in March.

The district is seeking a $19 million bond issue and a renewal of a two-year, $9.91 million supplemental levy, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported Tuesday.

Both questions will appear on the March 12 ballot.

The bulk of the bond issue money, $12.5 million, would go toward a new elementary school, the Press reported. The rest of the money would go toward building improvements and land purchases.

Post Falls has collected a supplemental levy for decades. A $4.955 million-a-year levy has been in place for two years.

While supplemental levies require only a simple majority to pass, bond issues need a two-thirds supermajority.

Post Falls is now at least the third district with plans for a March bond issue. Cassia County and Salmon also have proposals on the ballot.
