OMAK – A request for a replacement programs and operations levy will go to Omak School District voters on Feb. 11, 2020.
The school board decided Nov. 26 to put the request to voters.
Under the request, voters will be asked to approve $1,175,719 for collection in 2021, $1,187,476 for 2022, $1,199,351 for 2023 and $1,211,344 for 2024.
