The Edmonds School District is hosting a community meeting Wednesday night to provide information about the supplemental levy scheduled to appear on the Aug. 17 primary election ballot. The meeting will start at 7 p.m. in the Edmonds-Woodway High Library.
The Edmonds School Board voted last week to run the supplemental levy, which would raise about $7 million yearly for the district’s general fund through 2014. If approved, the levy would add approximately $107 annually — or about $9 per month — to the property tax bill of a house valued at $350,000. During the recent legislative session, Washington state legislators changed the levy law through 2017 as a way to allow communities to legally supplement their local community schools by voting for a supplemental levy.
