Alta-Aurelia voters to decide on PPEL reauthorization

Where can we vote and when?

Voting locations will be the community center in Alta and the community center in Aurelia. Patrons living in the previous Alta School District will vote in Alta. Patrons living in the previous Aurelia School District will vote in Aurelia. Both locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2.

What is a voter-approved Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL), and why does the Alta-Aurelia School District need to reauthorize a voter-approved PPEL?

The current voter-approved PPEL expires in fiscal year 2020 and needs to be acted upon by the citizens of the district, in order for it to be extended. Reauthorizing the PPEL will have no negative effect on the current property tax rate.

This is not a new tax nor is it a tax increase. It is simply reauthorizing a current levy that was voted into place within the past 10 years.
