There was a Flagstaff School District Budget Override Question on the March 9 ballot in Coconino County for residents in the city of Flagstaff.

This measure was approved

  • YES 9,199 (54.25%) Approveda
  • NO 7,757 (45.75%)[1]

This measure asked voters if they wanted to allow the school district to exceed their budget limitation set forth by the state. The proposed budget will be $6,059,219 over the limit and will be funded by an increase in local property taxes within the district.[2]

Opponents to the budget override and tax increase had posted their campaign online, though omitting some facts weakens their arguments. They cite district overspending and mismanagement as their main reasons for being against this measure.[3]
