NCW — It looks like property tax measures are passing to benefit schools throughout Chelan and Douglas counties, as well as a Chelan County fire department.

The levies require simple majorities to pass.

Here were the results as of Tuesday evening for the special election, according to the Secretary of State’s Office. The election will be certified Feb. 21.

Chelan County

Levy rates per $1,000 of assessed property value would be $1.75 in 2021, $2 in 2022, and $2.25 in 2023 and 2024.

The district estimates this would generate about $1.7 million the first year, about $2.1 million the second, about $2.5 million the third and about $2.7 million the last.

Entiat School District

A renewed educational programs and operation levy is passing by 266 votes (58.46%) to 185 votes (40.66%).
