One of the issues decided during the Tuesday, November 5 city election was the proposed yearly levy to benefit the Mountain Line, Missoula’s mass transit system.

With 90 percent of the vote tabulated, the Missoula Urban Transportation District passed by a vote of 8,970 for, or 55.9 percent, to 7,089 against, or 44.1 percent.
Mountain Line General Manager Michael Tree, reached at the Missoula Fairgrounds Election Center, was understandably happy about the outcome.
“Some great improvements are in store,” Tree said. “About $1.7 million each year will go primarily towards operations. The three major improvements are service for seniors and the disabled, then, the four most popular routes in the city will now operate until 9:50 p.m. with smaller buses, so if you’re working at the mall, you can get a ride home, and there will be more frequency, so the buses will come more often.”
The yearly $1.7 million levy will add about $32 per year in property taxes for a home valued at $200,000 in Missoula.
Missoula City-County Clerk and Recorder and Elections Officer Vicki Zeier said voter turnout is always much higher with a mail-in ballot.
“Tonight’s results represent about a 38 percent voter turnout,” Zeier said. “In a regular poll election, when the mayor was on the ballot, it averaged somewhere between a 24 and 28 percent turnout.”
