Local option levy moves to 2019 ballot
The West Linn-Wilsonville School Board announced the school district will go out for a renewal of its local option tax, which is a $1.50 tax per $1,000 of the assessed value for general operations, during the November 2019 election. Unlike capital project bonds, option levy taxes are used for operational expenses, such as teachers and programming. WL-WV voters approved the last option levy in 2014 and it is set to expire following the 2019-20 fiscal year. The tax currently provides enough funding for 80 full-time, non-administrative staff in the district.
