Hansen School District Officials Decide To Put Supplemental Levy On May Ballot


By Andrew Reed

Hansen, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Hansen School District is moving forward with another supplemental levy election in May.

The school board met with the public to hear feedback on the levy that didn't pass on the ballot last week.

After a long discussion, school board members voted unanimously to have a 2-year $190,000 levy back on the ballot.

The levy would maintain salary and benefits for school staff.

"The feedback that we received from the public was that they felt a lot of people forgot about the election or didn't know about it. The feeling was to run it again and try to publicize it more,” said Chairman Dave Bjorneberg, Hansen School Board.

The Minidoka School Board also had a discussion on whether or not to move forward with putting a levy on the May ballot.

Dr. Scott Rodgers told Idaho’s First News the patron advisory committee did not feel a supplemental levy is something that should be looked at.
