LPOSD: Where is the Accountability?
One of the arguments against the November 2019 school levy was whether or not the people could hold the Lake Pend Oreille School District (LPOSD) accountable once the permanent levy passed. We were assured we could trust the LPOSD.
As the first demonstration of trust to the citizens, the district violated Title 33-512, a requirement to govern the school district in compliance with state law, and by violating Titles 34-439A, a law that mandates required ballot language. To make matters worse, they then stand by their decision to break the law.
LPOSD understood their mistake and hired a high-caliber law firm from Boise—Hawley Troxell Ennis & Hawley LLP on 11/06/2019—with our tax dollars. The invoice from this firm is entitled “Election Challenge.” This entry is just one day after the election, without even knowing the outcome, and without a formal complaint from any constituents. It looks like LPOSD was preparing to defend their mistake even before the challenge was even brought to them.
Since the LPOSD is not going to hold themselves accountable, we must. Visit idahotaxwatch.com to see how you can help.
