NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
SHINGLE CREEK and WEST MISSISSIPPI
WATERSHED MANAGEMENT COMMISSIONS
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Notice is hereby given that the Shingle Creek and West Mississippi Watershed Management Commissions will meet at Lancer at Edinburgh, 8700 Edinbrook Crossing, Brooklyn Park, MN, on Thursday, September 13, 2012 at approximately 12:45 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, for a public hearing on the following improvements:
Project 2013-01 NEW HOPE BASS CREEK BANK STABILIZATION
Location: Bass Creek from approximately 61st Circle North to 62nd Avenue North.
Description: The project would stabilize 800 feet of streambank using bioengineering techniques, to reestablish about 1,100 feet of native buffer, and armor three erosion-prone areas. Bass Creek is designated an Impaired Water for Biotic Integrity. The project would incorporate root wads and other habitat improvements to address that impairment. New Hope intends to go forward with this project in late 2012.
Cost: The estimated project cost is $70,000. Of this amount, the City of New Hope would fund $52,500. The Shingle Creek Commission proposes to fund $17,500 from its Closed Project Account.
The Shingle Creek watershed includes portions of the cities of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Crystal, Maple Grove, Minneapolis, New Hope, Osseo, Plymouth, and Robbinsdale. Maps of the watershed are available at the respective city halls or at www.shinglecreek.org.
PROJECT 2013-02 STREAM STABILIZATION AT THE MILL POND DAM
Location: Elm Creek from West River Road to the Mississippi River.
Description: This project is located in Champlin at the outflow of the Mill Pond Dam to the Mississippi River. This project consists of stream stabilization and emergency spillway culverts completed with a separate project to construct a new open spillway for low flow events with a multiple-culvert overflow spillway capable of conveying the 500-year peak flow. This improvement includes riprap work along the stream edge at the dam outfall and native vegetation on the slopes above the riprap section. The purpose of this project is to stabilize the streambank to prevent erosion and reduce stream sedimentation and to reduce the risk of flooding during 100-year rain events.
Cost: The estimated project cost is $500,000. Of this amount, the City of Champlin would fund $375,000. The West Mississippi Commission proposes to fund $125,000 by certifying this cost to Hennepin County for collection with the county ad valorem tax levy.
The West Mississippi Commission proposes to proceed under the authority granted by Minnesota Statutes, Section 103B.251 to certify its share of the project cost to Hennepin County for payment by a tax levy on all taxable property located within the West Mississippi watershed. This watershed includes portions of the cities of Brooklyn Center, Brooklyn Park, Champlin, Maple Grove, and Osseo. Maps of the watershed are available at the respective city halls or at www.shinglecreek.org.
Persons who desire to be heard with reference to the proposed improvements will be heard at this meeting. Written comments may be submitted to Tina Carstens, c/o JASS, 3235 Fernbrook Lane, Plymouth, MN 55447, or emailed to judie@jass.biz. Auxiliary aids for persons with handicaps are available upon request at least 7 days in advance. Please contact Judie Anderson at 763-553-1144 to make arrangements.

(Anoka-Hennepin School District)
STATE OF MINNESOTA
The School Board of Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District No. 11 held a regular meeting on Monday, July 9, 2012, at the Educational Service Center, Coon Rapids, Minnesota.

Chair Heidemann led the pledge of allegiance.
Chair Heidemann explained the process for appointing the new board member to fill the open board position. He stated that the process to fill the open seat took longer than usual because the School Board had to wait for new district boundaries determined by the 2010 Census. Once the boundaries were approved April 30, the School Board began the process of filling the open seat. Seven candidates applied for the position. Based on a 14-point set of criteria used to evaluate the candidates, four were selected for interview. Jeffrey Simon was determined to be the top candidate.
Chair Heidemann introduced the following resolution and moved its adoption.

WHEREAS, the procedures utilized by the Board are in compliance with Minnesota Statutes, Section 123B.09, subd 5.;
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the School Board of Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District No. 11 appoints Jeffrey Simon to fulfill the remainder of the term in District #6 which expires on January, 2014.
The motion for adoption of the foregoing resolution was duly seconded by Board Member Dr. Wenzel and upon vote being taken thereon, the following voted in favor: Anderson, Heidemann, Hoffman, Sullivan and Wenzel and
the following voted against: none.
Whereupon said resolution was declared duly passed and adopted.
Chair Heidemann thanked the Board for their extra time involved and their timely responses and thanked the individuals that applied. The decision was very difficult.

Michelle Vargas, chief financial officer, presented the Truth and Taxation timeline. Truth and Taxation is a process that the legislature enacted in 1988 to enhance public participation in Minnesota’s property tax system. It includes public advertisements on budget/levy of certain taxing jurisdictions; public hearings; and changes in property tax statements.
Timeline for 2012-13:
• Sept. 24 – Proposed tax levy reviewed by School Board and certified to the Anoka and Hennepin county auditors. Announce hearing and adoption date to be published in the minutes.
• Between Nov. 11 and Nov. 24 – County auditors mail parcel specific notice to each property owner.
• Dec. 10 – Prior to its regularly scheduled meeting, the School Board holds a Truth and Taxation hearing for public testimony at 6 p.m. During the regularly scheduled meeting, members adopt the levy.
• Dec. 26 – Certify levy to the county auditors.
• Jan. 1 – Submit Truth and Taxation information to the Minnesota Department of Revenue.
• On or before Jan. 7 – Notify the Minnesota Department of Education of final certified levies.
Mike Sullivan moved to approve the Truth and Taxation timeline. John Hoffman seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Dr. Joel VerDuin, chief technology and information officer, and Bruce DeWitt, instructional technology facilitator, presented bids to the School Board for classroom amplification system equipment from First Tech and installation from Olympic Communications for approval. VerDuin spoke about the process to select purchasing the amplification systems, the multiple stakeholders who were part of the decision making process and the research that supports that this technology has a direct impact on student achievement. He said this is a well-researched, high impact technology. The amplification systems cost about $2,200 each and last for about 10 years; the total cost for the project is about $1 million. With amplification systems currently in about 250 classrooms, another 700 classrooms will receive this technology. Most systems will be installed in elementary school classrooms, where children’s voices are softer, as well as middle school math and high school social studies and science classrooms. Other funds from the first year of the technology levy will be used to purchase 400 to 450 projectors for classrooms as well as iPads for a pilot project for English language learners and computers for teachers. School Board Vice Chair John Hoffman asked when student computers will be replaced. DeWitt said that replacing teachers’ computers will free up newer machines for media centers and computer labs, and computers for students will be purchased during the second year of the technology levy.
Mike Sullivan moved approval of the classroom amplification system equipment and installation. Marci Anderson seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Chair Heidemann recessed the meeting at 6:55 p.m. The Board reconvened in closed Executive Session to discuss negotiations at 7:10 p.m. The meeting reconvened in open session at 7:20 p.m.
Marci Anderson moved and John Hoffman seconded the motion to adjourn the meeting. Motion passed.
