Pueblo County School District 70 Levy Override (November 2011)
This measure was defeated
- YES 5,114 (35.18%)
- NO 9,422 (64.82%)
This measure sought to increase the current school levy by a rate of 5.95 mills for a further five years in order to pay for budget deficits. The school district noted the decrease in state funding and noted this as the best way to be able to maintain current school services. If this measure is approved, along with the bond measure, average homeowners would pay an addition of $7 a month on their property taxes. Programs that had also been cut due to budget shortfalls would also be restored. Once this expires in five years, school officials noted that they would ask for its renewal again.
