It appears that Millard schools will get the economic shot in the arm officials were hoping for.

According to the initial results of today’s levy override election, the override is looking more and more like a landslide.

Fifty-nine percent voting for the override, 41 percent voting against it, with about 40 percent of the district’s eligible voters submitting ballots.

The final numbers in this vote-by-mail only election are expected to be released at 7:30 tonight.

Voting started February 21, as Millard officials asked voters to extend the 2018 levy override another five years.

With three high schools, six middle schools, and 25 elementary schools benefitting, voters were told the cost to the owner of a $300,000 home would be less than $10 a month.

The money going to day-to-day operating costs such as salaries, benefits, books, and basketballs.

Without the increase officials were predicting serious fallout, including unnamed cuts.
