I hope everyone had a great and safe 4th of July. 

I want to thank everyone that was able to show up to our community meetings.  We received a lot of constructive and positive feedback.  The purpose of the meetings along with all of the information on our website is to provide the general public with the information and answer any questions before the August 9th Bond Referendum vote.

In a follow-up to these community meetings, we will have an Open House of our facilities on July 13 and July 20 starting at 7 p.m.  The starting point for the open house nights will be the auditorium lobby. You would enter door #13 on the south side of the building complex.  We would invite you to come to look at the areas that have been described in the brochures and presentations for updates and replacements. 

I want to continue to caution you on the tax calculator located on our website.  Attempting to use this for ag land will not give you accurate information.  It states on the website to reach out to Ehlers directly with your questions on calculating the tax impact of ag land. Calculation of the tax impact on ag land is very complicated.  There are numerous factors that go into this calculation.  Here are the direct contacts for Ehlers:

Email them: info@ehlers-inc.com

Call them: 1-800-552-1171

I want to continue to make a standing offer on my part to be in attendance at the request of any individual or group of people that have questions on the bond referendum. I want to keep my calendar fairly open for the summer to attend to any requests. I do have standing meetings on my calendar so I cannot grant every request but I would like the opportunity to see if any other date would work.

If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me or any of the building principals.
