NEWS BRIEFS

HORN ANNOUNCES OFFICE HOURS – State Sen. Ken Horn (R-Frankenmuth) will be available to meet with constituents on Monday, Aug. 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Argentine Township Office Building, 9048 Silver Lake Road, Linden. Horn will be on hand to answer questions and respond to concerns any residents of the district may have. No appointment is necessary. For more information or to contact Horn, visit www.SenatorKenHorn.com or call (517) 373-1760.

LUNCH PRICES – During the Tuesday, Aug. 14 meeting of Montrose Community Schools, Superintendent Dr. Linden Moore informed the board of education that the price of student lunches will not increase for the 2018-2019 school year; however, adult meal prices will increase to $3.65 per meal. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) sets meal prices in relation to the cost of free and reduced meals, that way the USDA doesn’t reimburse school lunch programs more than school districts charge paying students and adults for meals.

PAINTING – “There’s a rogue crazy person who is going through and freshening paint in the buildings,” Montrose Community Schools Superintendent Dr. Linden Moore said during the

Tuesday, Aug. 14 committee meeting. He hinted school board member Paul Wade brought a professional paint spraying rig to use at the schools. Moore said, “Notice the football team room, the old, old bathrooms, the old concession stand. We’re getting back to red and black (not pink and gray). It looks awesome. It motivates. It causes a ripple effect.” He explained that others have also freshened up the paint. Youth baseball painted their dugouts in time for the Blueberry Festival. Fresh-crushed asphalt has also been applied to the ballfield parking lot. “It looks awesome. These very little things are making our facilities look great.”

LOTS SOLD – On Monday, Aug. 13, the Chesaning Union Schools Board of Education considered a purchase offer on five residential lots south of Big Rock Elementary School. The property was acquired when the school district needed a second access road for the elementary school as a safety precaution. Nick Everett has a proposal on the table to purchase all five lots, building one house each year. The school board asked that the property titles be transferred as soon as Everett starts construction. If approved, the first home is slated to start for construction in 2019.
