Frontier Board Adopts Budget

Frontier School District trustees adopted the final fiscal year 2015-2016 budget during a special meeting Monday, Aug. 24, one day in advance of the Aug. 25 state-imposed deadline.
Final adoption was delayed during the monthly school board meeting Tuesday Aug. 18, due to concerns by superintendent Christine Eggar that the totals might not have been correct.
She said the difference could change the amount of property tax home and business owners in the district pay.
The final adopted budget [total of all district funds] was $1,506,756. Before the recalculations, the total budget was presented at $1,630,309, a difference of $123,553.
The new calculations reduced bus depreciation from $164,522 to $72,225 and retirement from 151,200 to 119,993.
In other business during the special meeting, the board approved the admission of three out of district students, two in first grade and one in second.
The trustees also approved the renewal of the contract with Marianne Rees to renew her contract as athletic director.
In another matter, the board approved a rental housing contract with new district clerk Angela Hernandez, allowing her to move into a subsidized rental the district leases.

County Commissioner Tenders Resignation

8.27.15.COMMISSIONER-RESIGNS-WEB


With an unanticipated vacancy in the District 1 seat on the Roosevelt County Commission, applicants are sought for an appoint for an interim term.
Allen Bowker submitted his resignation from the commission Monday, Aug. 17, just over nine months after he was elected in November 2014. The resignation is effective Monday, Aug. 31.
Bowker, 52, of Culbertson was elected to a six-year term, defeating Frank Smith of Poplar 645-368 in the general election for the seat formerly held by Jim Shanks of Brockton, who did not seek another term.
District 1 covers the eastern part of the county from the east end of Poplar to the state line.
“I have been thinking about it for the past several months,” Bowker said. “Between my garbage business and the farm, I have bitten off too much.” Bow-ker owns Bowker Sanitation & Roll Off of Culbertson and a farm east of Culbertson.
“I wanted to get things done but I didn’t have enough time,” he said.
“Everybody on this end [of Roosevelt County] already knows. I pretty much spread the word around,” Bowker said.
He said he wanted to get roads improved on the east end of the county when he ran for the commission seat.
“I’m still looking forward to working with the commissioners down here on road issues,” Bowker said. “Just because I’m not a commissioner doesn’t mean I can’t work with them.”
Assistant County Attorney Jordan Knudsen said the person the commissioners appoint would serve through 2016. If the person appointed chooses to run for the seat, that individual would have to run for a four-year term [to complete Bowker’s six-year term] in the June 2016 primary and win the November 2016 general election.
Commission presiding officer Duane Nygaard said Bowker’s position will be advertised for two weeks. Interested persons will be interviewed and the commissioners will make an appointment on a undetermined date, likely in mid- or late September.
