Posted on 29th October 2013 at 15:28

The Longview School Board is moving ahead with a resolution to place two four-year levy measures on the February ballot, meshing with Kelso’s plans to also run a four-year levy on the February 11th special election ballot. Board President Jerry Stinger says that this is a good plan for Longview…lvlevy…Similar to Kelso, Longview is putting forward a levy that will maintain the same tax rate as this coming year. The levy resolution puts forward a tax rate of $3.50 per $1,000 of assessed valuation, raising between $15.1 million and $15.5 million between 2015 and 2018. They’re also putting up another Technology and Capital Projects levy, coming in at 34 cents per $1,000 over the four years, projected to bring in about $1.5 million each year. Half of those dollars will go to district technology needs, and half will go to preservation, renovation and modernization of district buildings.
