Several school districts seek levies Tuesday

While voters decide on some high-profile primaries, several Idaho school districts will seek property tax levies.

Here’s a look at Tuesday’s school elections:

  • Cascade has a proposed 10-year, $2.4 million plant facilities levy that would bankroll a new multipurpose athletic facility. This levy needs a 55 percent majority to pass.
  • Hagerman is seeking a five-year, $1.25 million plant facilities levy, replacing a levy that will expire in 2019. This levy also requires 55 percent support.
  • Wendell is seeking a two-year, $1.2 million supplemental levy, mirroring its existing levy. All supplemental levies need only a simple majority to pass.
  • Whitepine is seeking a one-year $880,000 supplemental levy. The district collected $838,640 in levies in 2017-18.
  • Salmon River hopes to renew a one-year, $525,000 supplemental levy.
  • Nezperce is seeking its own supplemental levy renewal, at one year and $445,000.
  • Rockland will seek a two-year, $420,000 supplemental levy. The district collected about $179,000 in levies in 2017-18.
  • Cottonwood has proposed a one-year, $325,000 supplemental levy, a decrease from its current $350,000 levy.
  • Council will seek a two-year, $170,000 supplemental levy, another renewal.
  • Cambridge will seek a renewal on a two-year, $160,000 supplemental levy.

And there is at least one Tuesday non-election. The Kellogg School District decided on April 11 to cancel a plant facilities levy. The question will still appear on Tuesday’s ballot, but the results will not count.
