Let Lake Pend Oreille School District Know: The Law Matters!
In the recent November Bonner County levy, the Lake Pend Oreille School District (LPOSD) violated the Idaho law requiring the ballot language to include the specific amount taxpayers will be required to pay. Omitted was the fact that the levy increases property taxes by $214 per every $100,000 of your property’s assessed value. This language is critical to allow taxpayers to make informed decisions. If this had been on the ballot, would you have changed your vote?
If you voted Yes in November and would have voted No if the required language had been on the ballot....Please sign this petition.
If you didn't vote in November and would have made sure to vote No if the required language had been on the ballot.....Please sign this petition.
This issue affects property owners and renters alike. LPOSD violated state law and they are now fighting to keep this permanent levy instead of voiding it and running it again legally. They claim the illegally omitted language would not have changed the outcome and the levy would have passed regardless. We at Idaho Tax Watch disagree. Please help us show LPOSD that following the law matters! Sign and/or share this petition today.
