SCHOOL LEVY: Too much money

| August 14, 2022 1:00 AM

I am writing a letter in protest of the proposed $80 million Coeur d’Alene School District Levy. I am 70 years old. I am retired, a homeowner and on a fixed income. Recently my Verizon cellphone bill went up 20%. My auto insurance went up 19%. Avista rates are up. Internet is up. Food and gas costs are way up. My Kootenai County home assessment went up 60%. The city wants more money. The county wants more money. I can go on and on but you get the idea. Soon I may be taxed out of my own home.

I am from and live in Coeur d’Alene. I am for quality education and good facilities for our students. However, I believe the proposed $80 million school district levy increase is too much money for an inflated wish list. This proposed levy is not a necessity list. Until they pare it down to something more reasonable and affordable, I will be voting no.
