Voters in the Melba school district Tuesday approved a $600,000 supplemental levy for the 2010-11 budget.
The vote was 299 yes votes, or 67 percent, and 147 no votes, or 33 percent. In all, 446 voters voted. A simple majority is required for supplemental levies.
“The Board of Trustees thanks the patrons for their tremendous support,” according to a press release sent out by Melba superintendent Bob Larson.
The $600,000 supplemental levy is a $190,000 increase over last year’s $410,000 supplemental levy, which voters approved by a vote of 274-126, or a 69 percent approval.
