How does USD 428 have the authority to approve a mill levy increase for the Recreation Commission? Shouldn’t the taxpayers have that authority? It is perplexing to me that the article regarding this issue states in the last paragraph that if there is no opposition to this measure, then it will automatically pass after 30 days. Why wouldn’t this issue be addressed directly to the taxpayers by allowing them to vote as opposed to somehow having to reverse a decision made by one taxing entity for another? I sure hope someone will take the time to enlighten me on this issue. It just doesn’t make sense to me.
