It's time for the voters of Davenport to go to the polls and vote on the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy extension on March 27. Voters will go to their normal polling location from 7am until 8pm. With 32 buildings averaging 55 years of age, the school district has an on-going need to invest in preventive maintenance and critical building renovations to meet the needs of students and teachers. Voting "Yes" will mean the extension of the current PPEL at the same rate of 97 cents per $1000 of assessed property value. Please note that the school district is NOT asking for an increase in the amount, rather a continuation of the levy for the 10 year period beginning in 2008. This is NOT a new tax.
