The Colfax school board Monday approved a two-year maintenance and operations levy which will go before district voters in February.
The levy for 2021 and 2022 would collect $900,000 per year. The board approved the number Monday night after a volunteer committee decided on it in two meetings this fall with input from Superintendent Jerry Pugh and Business Manager Reece Jenkin.
