Taxpayers approve Sequim school levies
For weeks, Sequim school advocates have been stressing the importance of two levies that help fund programs the district offers and for a new fleet of buses.
On Tuesday night, voters supported two Sequim School District proposals in overwhelming fashion, accepting a four-year Education Programs and Operations levy and one-time Transportation Vehicle Fund levy.
The education programs levy earned 6,833 yea votes to 3,331 nay votes, or a little more than 67 percent; only a 50 percent simple majority was needed.
The Transportation Vehicle Fund earned 6,576 yea votes to 3,590 nay votes, a 65-35 split. As with the education programs levy, the transportation proposal also needed a simple majority to pass.
The county elections office will have a new count by Friday, Feb. 15; see vote.wa.gov/results/current/clallam/ for an update.
The next count after Friday will be on certification day on Feb. 26.
