55% of the community voted yes on the budget proposal while 45% voted no on the budget. The two propositions were approved by 76% and 75%, respectively. However, the district’s proposal to exceed the property tax cap required 60% of voters to vote yes. Therefore the budget was not approved and by law the propositions cannot be approved if the budget proposal to exceed the cap is not approved.
We hope that you will be able to join us at the next “Be the Healing” event on Tuesday, May 28 at 6 p.m. in the Administration Building Board Room.
