Voters in Kootenai County passed two big school levies Tuesday night.
Coeur d’Alene School District’s levy passed with 66-percent of voters saying yes with all but one precinct reporting as of 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.
Coeur d’Alene’s levy would fund building safety and security in the district as well as basic maintenance and operations. The majority of the funds in the levy, $12.9 million per year for two years, will replace an expiring levy. It’s 22-percent of the district’s general fund budget.
68-percent of Post Falls voters approved the school district’s levy there. That levy is $4.25 million per year for two years. It is for general maintenance and operations.
Mullan Mayor Mike Dunnigan and City Councilman Dan White both survived recall votes in Shoshone County.
