3B election results
With an unofficial total of 10,542 votes, the Adams County School District 50 mill levy override effort to bring in more district funding didn't make the cut. As of 8 p.m. on election night, 60 percent of voters noted no on the 3B issue. The total of votes amounted to 6,381 against the measure and just 4,161 for the measure. At this time, all results are not official.
If approved the mill levy override would have raised $5.25 million, which equates to an increase of $6.63 per month and $86 per year on a home valued at $100,000. Although it looks as though the measure will not pass, it was backed by two major entities: the city of Westminster and the Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District, who both passed resolutions supporting the mill levy override before the election.
This is the first mill levy override put before the voters since 2002. The ballot language focused on our key objectives: providing student with instruction and basic skills for success in college, and the work place, keeping highly qualified teachers and staff in the classroom, providing each child access to comprehensive education and providing funds to implement the necessary improvements which are conductive to the health and well-being of students.
