School levy increase officially passes after recount

Posted:

Dubuque (KWWL) -- Dubuque County election officials recounted ballots from five presincts from a school distrcit special election about a proposed levy increase last Tuesday. 

Poll officials at five presincts did not properly fill out a form on election day.

At Tuesday's recount, offcials got the exact same number of votes counted on election day.

The levy increase passed with a margin of just over 62%.  The results will be certified to the school district on Thursday.  The levy increase will give the district more spending authority.
