Other Western School Board action

Posted: Updated:

In other action, Western School Board members:

• Held a public hearing and adopted a tax levy totaling $2,193,298, up $108,387 over last year. An anticipated rise in equalized assessed value is expected to add revenue at the same tax rate.

• Planned to hold a public hearing in January on plans to issue $860,192 in working cash bonds.

• Approved a request from the after-prom group to use both gyms for the event. The district also will ask the group to sign an yet-to-be-developed agreement on facility use. The district already has an agreement with the Western Youth Recreational Association and will develop a similar agreement for other groups.

• Heard the district did not win a Farm to School grant, but it can follow the current grants to learn more to reapply in the future.

    Would you believe Quincy tied the record for coolest -- "coldest" seems rather harsh -- July on record with an average daily temperature of 71.3 degrees? That matched the average daily July temperature of 2009.
