District plans levy committee

— The Omak School District is forming a levy committee to put together a tax levy proposal for a February 2014 election.

Superintendent Erik Swanson said the group will “determine our levy funding for the next two to four years.

“We are actively seeking staff members as well as community members to serve on the levy committee that will finalize plans for the levy and lead the drive to prepare our community for the vote in February.”

After the holidays, the committee will focus on the details of the tax measure, Swanson said.
