(Port Angeles) -- About 12 percent of the ballots are back for next month's Sequim school levies.
Through yesterday,just over 26-hundred of the more than 21-thousand ballots sent out had been returned to the county auditor's office.
The district seeks renewal of its maintenance and operations levy, plus approval of a second, one-year levy that would be used to pay for new school buses.
The four-year maintenance and operations levy would be the same as the current levy, bringing in just over 5 and three quarters million dollars a year for the district. The rate would be about $1.60 per thousand dollars of property valuation.
If approved, the bus levy would bring in just over one and a half million dollars. That levy would add about 44 cents per thousand of property valuation under the current assessments.
Ballots must be postmarked or returned to an official drop box by February 12th to be valid.
