BCC Trustees hold line on tax rate

Barton Community College's Board of Trustees approved the college's 2016-2017 budget Tuesday after inviting comments or questions from the public. Hearing none, the budget was adopted. Based on valuation numbers provided by the county on June 21, it is estimated that the mill levy will be the same as the actual rate in 2014-2015, which was 33.124 mills. In 2015-2016 the rate was similar at 33.090.

Marsh Musings

Cheyenne Bottoms is a prairie pot-hole area about 41,000 acres in size. It is divided into several different plots of ground including the KDWP marsh, the Nature Conservancy marsh, Hoisington Duck Club and some other private individual pieces of ground. You can recall the stir that occurred when a private landowner was going to drill an oil well in the basin. That is his right on his land. I don't know if he did or not-but we have never seen any ill effects if he did.
