Editorial: Levies: A local choice
Back in November 2006, District 518's existing operating levy was due to expire. The district opted to a put a replacement levy referendum before voters, which passed by a margin of 2,876- 2,356.
The new operating levy, set at $1,000 per pupil unit, is slated to be in place until 2014. Its passage meant an additional $2.638 million per year for the district for its eight-year duration, with $1.378 million coming from the state and the rest from local property taxes.
