A special budget override for the Williams Unified School District is on its way to passing.

The Williams-Grand Canyon News reports unofficial results from the November 2nd election show the majority of votes were in favor of the override. It would allow the school district to increase budgets for capital, maintenance and operations.

The override is not a new tax. It’s purpose is to maintain $500,000 in additional revenue for the districts yearly budget. Property owners have paid 4-7 dollars a month for the override since it was originally passed in 1999.

According to the Coconino County Elections Office, voter turnout was just shy of 30%.
