Lew-Port budget fails
Wed, May 22nd 2013 11:40 am
There was silence when the vote was announced at Lewiston-Porter Tuesday night. The silence reflected the disappointment of the board and administrators as they learned the 2013-14 tax levy proposition was defeated by a 1,105 to 912 vote.

Lew-Port needed a 60 percent majority "yes" vote to pass the 5.52 percent tax levy. The levy exceeded the 4 percent threshold set by the state. The $40,001,368 spending plan was 1.16 percent less than the 2012-13 budget.

"I expected more from the community," said Board President Jodee Riordan. "We got the information out there as clear as possible."

"I'm hurt by it," said Superintendent Christopher Roser. "But they (the voters) spoke, and this is what we have to do."
