Salmon Schools Try 9th Time to Get Bond Levy

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Voters in the eastern Idaho town of Salmon are poised for another chance to approve a multimillion dollar bond levy to either fix or replace the aging elementary and middle school.

Eight times since 2005, Salmon School District officials have put the question to voters. Each time, the electorate has rejected proposals to replace the decades-old buildings. The May 21 ballot gives voters two options — approve $14.5 million for a new K-8 building or $3.6 million for new roofing on the existing structures. But this election has a twist.

Even if voters again say “no,” the state is expected to step in and loan the district money for new roofing. Residents will be required to repay the loan fund, set up by lawmakers in 2006 to help cash-strapped schools.
