Nampa Poised to Put Levy Before Voters Again


School board trustees in the Nampa School District want another crack at voters to see if they can do a better job of arguing for approval of a tax increase.

On March 13, Nampa voters turned thumbs down to a two-year $7.16 million supplemental school levy with 3,534 voting against and 2,348 in favor. This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Nampa trustees now want to put a two-year $1.6 million levy on a Tuesday, Aug. 28, ballot. Trustees also agreed to create an election committee to do a better job of explaining the levy.

The district still needs to file documents by Friday, July 13, to secure a spot on the Aug. 28 ballot.
