Voters Deciding On Twin Falls School District Levy


By Michelle Costa

TWIN FALLS, ID (KMVT-TV) - $7.5 million, that's the amount of money the Twin Falls School District is hoping voters will pass through a supplemental levy.

The levy is something the District said is vital for them to cover the cost of maintaining and operating schools for the next two years, along with restoring as many student and teacher contact days as possible.

Despite the weather, many people were still casting their ballots on Tuesday.

For taxpayers this levy means for every $100,000 your home is taxed at, you'll be paying $11 more per month.

"I think the bond issue is important and we need to support our schools and this is an important part of making sure they have enough money to do the programs they think are important,” said Michael McBride, Supports Levy.

"My husband and I raised three children here in Twin Falls and we're pleased with the schools and we want them to continue to have our support,” said Janet McBride, Supports Levy.

The polls close Tuesday night at 8 pm.
