|North Branch votes 4-1 on levy|
The full North Branch Council accepted the maximum levy for the proposed city 2018 budget on a 4-1 vote last week. Council member Robert Canada was opposed. He first clarified with Financial Director Richard Hill, that this is a “ceiling” and as a maximum, the council can’t go any higher, correct? Council is allowed to reduce the levy before final adoption in December. Then Canada voted no.
Janice Nadine (Elhardt) Nault, age 74, of North Branch, MN passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her husband, three daughters and son, on Sunday, September 17, 2017.
|A new school year is at hand|
I am honored to introduce myself as the Superintendent of the Chisago Lakes Public Schools! My name is Dean Jennissen, and I am looking forward to serving the students, staff, and families in these beautiful cities with fantastic schools. My wife Lisa, who is also an educator, and I have been married for nearly 28 years. We have two beautiful, grown daughters, who, we like to say, “are off the payroll” working as a Speech-Language Pathologist and an Agronomist. They too, are excited about mom and dad’s move to the Chisago Lakes Area and will be visiting often as they both live in the east metro.
