CDA Narrowly Rejects School Levy

The results are in: Coeur d'Alene residents have rejected a levy proposal that would have raised taxes in school district 271. Although fifty-eight more residents voted for the levy than did not, the levy required fifty-five percent support, and therefore failed.

Turnout was very low for this one issue election. Only about twenty percent of the eligible fifty thousand Coeur d'Alene residents made it to the polls for the pre-Labor Day ballot.
