BURLEY, Idaho — In Cassia County voters have renewed a two-year levy for the Burley Public Library.
This $227,280 levy has passed every year since 2007 and is used to cover 51% of the general operating funds for the library.
The library would like to see their levy become permanent one day. For now, they are grateful that the citizens of Burley continue to support them.
Unofficial election results show it passed with 74.50% of people voting in favor and 25.50% against.
“The library is here to serve them, and we make sure that we have that education and that outreach to them,” said Burley Public Library Director Tayce Robinson
This levy will not increase the taxpayer's levy rate, and the average homeowner will continue to pay about $1.70 a month to contribute.
