Queets-Clearwater levy gets nod from voters

FORKS — West End Jefferson County voters have overwhelmingly approved a three-year Educational Programs and Operations levy for the Queets-Clearwater School District.

In the second ballot count released Wednesday afternoon, 66.67 percent approved the levy with 16 votes, while 33.33 percent, or eight votes, opposed the measure.

The Queets-Clearwater School District EP&O replacement levy is estimated at about $225,000. It would cost taxpayers an estimated $1.25 per $1,000 in assessed valuation each year starting in 2022 to finance maintenance and operation expenses.

The election will be certified Feb. 19.
