West Ada to seek 10-year, $160 million plant facilities levy

The West Ada School District will go to voters in March seeking a 10-year, $160 million plant facilities levy.

The proposal represents a decrease from the current $20 million-a-year levy, Bill Roberts of the Idaho Statesman reported Monday. The district reduced the levy because it does not plan to use any plant facilities money to build new schools, Roberts reported.

Instead, the state’s largest school district would use this $16 million-a-year levy for maintenance and remodeling projects.

Several other Idaho districts will seek levies and bond issues on March 14.
