Jamie Johnston informed the board on the upcoming Falcon School District Election requesting another increase in Property taxes. District #49’s flyer states a $7.90 per month or annual $94.80 increase for every $100,000.00 in assessed value for each residential property. Jamie estimated it would be closer to $380.00 per $100,000.00 in assessed value for each Hangar property, as hangars are assessed at a rate of 29%, and residential around 8%. This would increase every year as property values increase and continue for 20 years. By unanimous consent, Jamie was authorized to mail this information to all MLAA property owners.

The meeting was Adjourned at 5:30 PM.

Respectfully submitted,
