LOGAN - Voters in Logan County will head to the polls Saturday to cast their votes on the Logan County School Bond Excess Levy. The election will be from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. at all usual county precinct sites.
The levy comes up for public vote every five years and helps cover expenses in the school system. Voters last approved the levy in 2013.
If approved, the new levy will begin July 1 and last until July 1, 2023. It will provide Logan County Schools approximately $44,565,650 over five years without any tax increase.
That total is down from the $58,869,910 provided by the previous levy. This is due to a decrease in property valuations in Logan County, which funding for the levy is based on.
In 2013, a total of 1,385 votes were cast in the special levy election. It passed by a landslide, with 1,148 (82.89 percent) voting for the levy and 237 (17.11 percent) voting against it.
