An Epic year. November 2017 something interesting happened. I received a phone call from a research firm inviting me to an event. It was to test if voters would support a bond (or put out as sinking fund) if placed on the November 2018 ballot.




RE: New Bond 2018   By: Joshua Gordon | C&G Newspapers | Published January 23, 2018 “This article stated that the district doesn’t have a new [bond or sinking fund] proposal ready to go; rather they are going to take time to collect data and figure out how to move forward with a plan that is supported by the community.”
Regarding the .99 raise in mills in 2014:    By Nicole Tuttle, Voice Reporter   Jul 24, 2014   “Chippewa Valley increased from 7.65 mills, which taxpayers have paid since 1979, to 8.64 mills starting in the summer of 2014 due to the legislation and the recession. “We anticipate that this increase will be temporary, approximately three years, based on modest property growth,” Blain said.
And   By: Jeremy Selweski | C&G Newspapers | Published July 16, 2014 “ For Chippewa Valley Schools, this means levying an additional 0.99 mill on its debt millage rate beginning this summer, an increase that officials estimate will last for the next three years. “ 
When the economy is good, everyone prospers.
Consider the following statement made to the C&G newspaper:   By: Joshua Gordon | C&G Newspapers | Published January 23, 2018

Ron Roberts has not responded as of yet. He does want you to know this:

” “We want to understand what is important to our community and we are working to do that,” Roberts said. “I think what people don’t understand is even though our buildings look nice, we are not funded at a level adequate enough to maintain those buildings for a prolonged period of time.”
