Canyon County residents voted Tuesday in favor of a Middleton school levy worth $1.31 million over two years, according to unofficial results.
In the seven precincts, 344 people, or 67 percent, voted in favor of the levy, with 163 people opposed.
Middleton School District No. 134 requested that the levy, which was already in place, be continued to maintain needed programs at the district. The programs are for fiscal years beginning July 1, 2018, and ending June 30, 2020.
Also on Tuesday’s election ballot was an effort to recall Notus Mayor Dave Porterfield. In the two city precincts, 48 people voted in favor of recalling Porterfield and 85 voted against the recall.
Never miss a local story.
The petitioners who attempted to recall the mayor claimed in the ballot’s statement that Porterfield willfully failed to comply with the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality’s rules for public drinking water systems and with Notus city code, among other allegations.
The mayor’s statement on the ballot argued that the petitioner exaggerated unfairly and inaccurately claimed that the city ignored risks.
Only about 7 percent of registered voters turned out at the polls on Tuesday.
