Garden Valley School District voters gave a roaring thumbs down to the $450K, two-year Supplemental Levy, on Tuesday, March 8, in an almost 2-1 shut-down.
330 voters in Garden Valley bellowed an unmistakable NO , while 158 residents chose to support the need of the District.
Lowman folks leaned way over, in a 54 No, to a 21 Yes.
Absentee voters opted to turn down the local tax, with 18 NO votes to a mini 2 Yea.
District Superintendent Dr. Michael Tomlin responded to the loss: "It's extremely disappointing. The board will need to discuss at the next meeting its full range of options. This does not bode well, given the state of our budget.
"We will have to go forward into making the cuts that the voters obviously want."
