LOLO- The ballots are arriving in the mail as Lolo School administrators seek the public's help in supporting a $30,000 technology levy.
Lolo School is asking for the levy in order to replace obsolete and not-working computers for students and staff according to an email sent out by Kelly Hart, a member of the Lolo Booster Club and school board.
She says that Lolo School is currently scheduled to replace computers only once every nine years due to lack of funding.
The $30,000 levy request would mean about a $6 increase in taxes on a home valued at $100,000 or $12 on a $200,000 home. The mail-in ballots are due back on Tuesday, May 8th.
Lolo School officials had a separate $54,000 general fund levy request voted down last May while a March 2011 building reserve levy was also rejected by voters.
