Former Lake Forest Park Councilwoman Carolyn Armanini asked a week ago whether the LFP City Council was considering opting out of the voters’ pamphlet for a tax measure on the August primary ballot.

In a letter here, Armanini compared the possibility of keeping the tax-measure out of the voters’ pamphlet to the School District’s opting out during the February special election.

Since then, the Council has passed a resolution specifying that there will be a voters' pamphlet published for this and future elections.

The Council then passed another resolution to put a levy-lid lift on the August ballot.

Councilmen Don Fiene and John Wright both told me recently that the Council had never considered opting out of the voters’ pamphlet.

Armanini had pointed to a City staff attachment to a draft of the levy-lift resolution that showed critical dates for the August election, including the deadline day for deciding not to have a measure included in the voters’ pamphlet.
