Although only 27.8 percent of the county's 12,952 registered 'voters took the time and trouble to participate in the special levy election; .8O.7 percent of them favored continuation of the levy which has been in effect in the county since 1946. The unofficial vote on the levy issue Friday was 2,857 in favor as against only 682 opposed. In two of the three special levy elections held in the past 15 months, the voters gave the 100- y a majority vote, but not the 60-percent majority needed for passage under state law. School's Supt. Raymond Frezier said school officials are pleased the levy passed this time, had it been defeated again, he said the school board would have had to trim about l0 to 15 percent from its budget, or'about $900,000.00. The first time the voters were special levy provides to the Board of Education, is used primarily to supplement teachers salaries over and above that paid through state aid monies. School officials had sought to gain an additional $100,000.00 by having a 100-percent levy in- stead of the 87 percent to be used in offsetting inflationary spirals in utilities and routine main- tenance, along with a few ad- ditional teachers. .Once again the Shepherdstown district led the county in favoring the levy with 87.7 percent of those voting in that district favoring the levy. At the same time, the Tuscawilla Hills Precinct just west of Charles Town, provided the strongest single precinct support, 92.3 percent. The Harpers Ferry District provided the smallest percentage of support for the levy with the Ranson Elemen- tary School again showing the most opposition to the levy. A breakdown of the vote by Precincts shows the following results for and against the levy. Charles Town Fire House, 50 for and 7 against; Wright Denny, 76 to 7; Baptist Church, 211 to 39; Court House, 87 to 18; Ranson Fith Ave., 78 to 21; Ranson Elementary, 46 to 39; Calvary Church, 89 to 34; Shenandoah Junction, 79 for asked to approve a 100-percent levy on November 1976, a total of and 35 against; Shipley Elem., on all Permanent Waves ,o persons voted o, the issue 86 to 25; Camp Hill, 48 to 10; and it was soundly beated.
