The latest numbers are in from the Chelan County Auditors Office, with very little change to the status of the three local measures.
The new tally shows the Chelan School District’s three year maintenance and operations levy will pass comfortably with a jump to a 61 percent yes vote, up two points from the preliminary numbers.
The Manson School District’s two year M and O levy received a bit of a positive bump as well, now up to a 67 percent yes vote.
Superintendent Matt Charlton says the funds make up about 15% of the district’s total budget, which has become increasingly important given the state’s tight budget:"CLICK HERE" for Audio
Superintendent Charlton credits the passage to a cooperative effort by the school board to set realistic goals for the levy, and to the levy committee who got the word out.
Collection for the 2 year measure would begin in January of next year and conclude in December of 2013.
On the other hand, the Manson Parks two year M and O Levy appears to be coming up a few votes short.
The latest results show an affirmative vote of 58.8 percent. The measure has the added burden of reaching a super-majority threshold of 60 percent to pass.
