Treasurer's Report:

Mr. Hammond told the Board that the unofficial results from the August 3rd Special Election shows that the District's 6.90 mill Emergency property tax was approved by 54 votes out approximately 2,400 votes cast. As a result, the margin of victory exceeds the statutory re-count provision and unless there is someone willing to pay for a re-count, the need for taking action to place the Emergency property tax back on the ballot in November is negligible. Therefore, Mr. Hammond recommends the Board not to take action on the proposed resolution to put the Emergency levy on the November General election.

Mr. Hammond then presented the next resolution, to place a 4.853 Conversion Levy on the November General election ballot. Mr. Hammond went over the information from the Tax Commissioner and explained the Conversion Levy concept to the Board. There was a lengthy discussion on whether to place the Conversion Levy on the ballot in November or waiting until next year.

Motion by Mr. Stark, seconded by Mr. Myers, to adopt Board Resolution number 10-11-11 placing a 4.853 mill Conversion property tax levy on the November 2, 2010 ballot; Roll Call: Mr. Myers: aye; Mr. Stark: aye; Mr. Lippert: aye.

pending completion of all state and local requirements;

Roll Call: Mr. Stark: aye; Mr. Myers: aye; Mr. Lippert: aye.

Motion by Mr. Myers, seconded by Mr. Stark to adjourn the meeting having no further business to come before the Board; Roll Call: Mr. Myers: aye; Mr. Myers: aye; Mr. Lippert: aye.
