NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING

SHINGLE CREEK WATERSHED MANAGEMENT COMMISSION
West Mississippi Watershed Management Commission

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Notice is hereby given that the Shingle Creek Watershed Management Commission and the West Mississippi Watershed Management Commission will meet at Lancer at Edinburgh, 8700 Edinbrook Crossing, Brooklyn Park, MN, on Thursday, July 11, 2013, at approximately 12:45 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, for a public meeting on a proposed management plan amendment.
Description: Minor Plan Amendment to the Shingle Creek/West Mississippi Third Generation Watershed Management Plan.
The proposed amendment would revise Appendix C, Rules and Standards, by adopting the new National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Atlas 14 precipitation frequency standards, replacing the outdated Weather Bureau Technical Paper 40 (TP-40) standards. Mandatory use of the Atlas 14 precipitation depths would be waived for projects that are at greater than 30 percent design as of the date of adoption of the amendment, which is expected to be July 11, 2013.
The proposed minor plan revision is shown as additions (underlined) or deletions (strike outs) to Appendix C, Rules and Standards, of the Management Plan. Rule D.3.(b) is hereby revised as follows:
Runoff rates for the proposed activity shall not exceed existing runoff rates for the 2-year, 10-year, and 100-year critical storm events for the project location as set forth in NOAA Atlas 14 Volume 8, published June 2013, or its successor, using the online NOAA Precipitation Frequency Data Server or a similar data source. Applicant must document the location and event depths used. The storm event table is shown below. If an approved local water management plan requires more restrictive rate control, then the more restrictive rate shall govern. Runoff rates may be restricted to less than the existing rates when necessary for the public health and general welfare of the watershed. Member cities and project review applicants shall not exceed discharge rates at City boundaries as determined in the Commission’s hydrologic model.
Table 2.3. Storm event depths by return frequency.

COMMUNICATIONS DELEGATIONS OR PETITIONS
Melissa Thompson spoke to the School Board about her perceived inadequacies with the recent parent survey conducted by the district. She said the questionnaire was too generic, offering just 18 questions, nine of which were demographic, and added that last year’s more comprehensive 99-question survey done by Decision Resources, Inc., was answered by too many people who didn’t have children attending Anoka-Hennepin schools. Of the 500 respondents last year, she said 330 didn’t have children in the district’s schools and felt the proportion was lopsided. Thompson specifically asked the board for access to past survey results and requested information on how much last year’s survey cost.
Superintendent Carlson gave a report to the board and reviewed the board calendar. The report included graduation dates, open forum testimony, the student support model, updates on the Indian Education Program and advisors. Superintendent Carlson appreciated everyone involved in the legislative session this year which ended far better than previously explained. Anoka-Hennepin ranked 11th from the top in per pupil funding in year one and about 50th from the top in year two. He cannot remember ever ranking that high at the end of a legislative session.
Heather Peters, communication coordinator for Community Education, and Cindy Reichert, Anoka County’s elections manager, presented a resolution establishing combined precincts for the 2013 election. The boundaries of Anoka-Hennepin’s six sub-districts needed shifting following the 2010 Census. With the district and only one other jurisdiction on the ballot in 2013, the county and school district are opting for combined polling places this November, when a number of municipal precincts are combined to form a larger precinct. The phenomenon is generally limited to off-year elections when city, county, state and federal races aren’t on the ballot. The goal for both Anoka-Hennepin and the county was to reduce the number of schools used as combined polling places. With the plan presented, just six schools will be used as polling places, compared to 18 last used in 2011. And in 2013, just three of the six schools listed as polling places will be used with just half of the district’s sub-districts electing School Board members. There is one exception this year; Coon Rapids will have a municipal election. The sub-districts there will not be changed in 2013 and the schools used in 2011 are expected to remain the same. The district will explore additional communication efforts at election time to avoid voter confusion about polling place locations. The following resolution was moved by Board Member Sullivan:
RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING COMBINED POLLING PLACES
FOR MULTIPLE PRECINCTS AND
DESIGNATING HOURS DURING WHICH THE POLLING
PLACES WILL REMAIN OPEN FOR VOTING
FOR SCHOOL DISTRICT ELECTIONS NOT HELD

BE IT RESOLVED by the School Board of Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District No.11, State of Minnesota, as follows:
1. Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 205A.11, the precincts and polling places for school district elections are those precincts or parts of precincts located within the boundaries of the school district which have been established by the cities or towns located in whole or in part within the school district. The board hereby confirms those precincts and polling places so established by those municipalities.
2. Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 205A.11, the board may establish a combined polling place for several precincts for school elections not held on the day of a statewide election.

Michelle Vargas, chief financial officer, presented the final amended budget for fiscal year 2012-2013. There were changes in only the General Fund and the Community Service Fund. The General Fund shows a revenue increase of approximately $4.3 million due to a one-time increase in the compensatory aid formula and adjustments in federal allocations and miscellaneous state and local grants. There is a corresponding increase in spending for federally funded programs and $3 million in capital carryover expenditures, bringing the total expenditure increase to $4.7 million. In total, amended revenues are expected to be $412 million and expenditures should be about $416.2 million, resulting in a $4.2 million operating deficit. The unassigned fund balance will be about $44 million, or 10.58 percent of total expenditures. The Community Service Fund shows a $152,971 increase in revenue and a $201,078 increase in expenditures. The ending balance for this fund will be about $4.4 million, or 23.67 percent of annual expenditures. When all funds are considered together, the amended budget projects $476 million in revenue and $482.7 million in expenditures. The board is expected to approve the final amended budget June 10.
Chief Financial Officer Michelle Vargas provided an overview of the proposed budget for 2013-14 that takes into account new funding levels set by the Minnesota Legislature May 20. The proposed General Fund budget includes a $78 per pupil general education revenue increase to $5,302 per pupil unit plus an increase of $4.5 million in basic skills revenue, resulting from $1.3 million additional on the compensatory formula and $3.2 million in additional compensatory education pilot revenue. Other state categorical funding and federal revenue will remain at current levels. The district will also receive $7.3 million in state Q Comp revenue. The revenue budget includes a projected decline of 476 pupil units. Total revenue will increase about $15 million to $422.8 million. Expenditures are expected to increase $18.6 million to $430 million, with the biggest portion of the increase, $10 million, resulting from implementation of the Q Comp program, which includes hiring 30 full-time peer evaluators. The expenditure budget is based on assumptions of a 2.5 percent increase in salaries for previously negotiated contacts and an estimated 2.5 percent increase for Social Security and pensions plus a $1 million additional contribution for the teacher pension fund mandated by law. Health insurance premiums are expected to increase 17 percent, the first increase in four years, and dental, group life and disability insurance premiums are expected to increase by 5 percent. Other spending assumptions include a 16.2 full time equivalent (FTE) teacher reduction as the result of declining enrollment and decreases in alternative facility, integration and capital spending corresponding to a $2.6 million decrease in revenue.
Property and liability insurance are expected to increase by 3 percent and transportation will increase at an estimated 2 percent. All other non-salary service expenditures will be held at current levels and there will be a $2 million reduction in one-time strategic investment items. Under the proposed budget, the unassigned fund balance will be approximately $38.4 million on June 30, 2014, which is 8.92 percent of expenditures. The district has a goal of maintaining a fund balance of at least 5 percent and the Government Finance Officers Association recommends a fund balance of 5 to 15 percent so the projected balance is well within guidelines. In the Food Service Fund, the district expects revenue of about $17.3 million and expenditures of $18.3 million, resulting in a deficit of $984,264. A restricted $5.3 million fund balance, which is over 29 percent of annual expenditures, will cover the deficit. No increase in the price of meals is planned. The district expects to receive about $250,000 additional federal revenue due to increasing numbers of students qualifying for free or reduced cost meals. Vargas noted that the budget includes remodeling of food service lines in some schools, but the cost is well within the program’s fund balance. She also said the district online fee payment for food service will no longer pass on a fee to parents; the fee will be absorbed by the program budget. The Community Service Fund shows projected revenue of approximately $19.25 million and expenditures of $19.6 million with a restricted fund balance of over $4 million or approximately 21 percent of annual expenditures. Vargas said the program has had a very consistent fund balance. The Capital Projects Fund consists of money from the Alternative Facilities Levy, which is levied in the General Fund and transferred into the Capital Projects Fund to pay for building improvements. The district expects to spend the entire $2.5 million that will go into this fund, leaving a restricted fund balance for the third year of $407,582. Vargas said the district has managed to keep property taxes for schools flat by minimizing building projects and reducing the Alternative Facilities Levy. The Debt Service Fund is used for paying principal and interest on bonded debt for school construction. Revenues for this fund will be about $22.9 million and expenditures $22.7 million with a restricted balance of $4.8 million. The Trust Fund is used for managing scholarships and the Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) trust fund managed by Wells Fargo. Revenue will remain stable at $1.2 million and expenditures at approximately $2 million. The restricted fund balance is expected to be $28.3 million. Board action on the budget is scheduled for June 24. “I will be back looking to approve a $493 million expenditure budget that is almost balanced. We are sitting in a better place than we were two weeks ago,” said Vargas referring to the result of the legislative session that ended May 20.
Ms. Vargas briefly described the changes in funding approved by the legislature over the estimates she had presented May 13. The increase in the basic aid formula was $1.1 million less than had been hoped; however there were improvements in compensatory aid and compensatory education pilot revenue totaling $4.5 million, as well as an increase of $257,109 in literacy aid and $281,000 in career and tech aid. In addition the special education formula was tweaked in a manner that favored Anoka-Hennepin with an additional $758,063 for next year. The following year there will be a further increase in literacy aid and special education aid as well as $700,000 for all-day-every-day kindergarten and $1.6 million for pension reduction. Board Chair Tom Heidemann commended Senator John Hoffman for his role in improving the compensatory formula for Anoka-Hennepin. “He is very stubborn and he stood his ground. That is a significant reason as to why our numbers changed,” said Heidemann. He also thanked the remainder of the district’s legislative delegation, singling out Rep. Jerry Newton for his work on the special education formula. Superintendent Dennis Carlson also thanked key senators and the Governor for their support. “The people involved with this really listened to us. Given the spending constrictions they had, they did the absolutely best job they could,” said Carlson. He noted that the final legislation includes property tax reduction, but at this point the amount is unclear. Despite the funding improvement, Vargas said the district expects a budget deficit of $5 million at the end of next year and $7.5 million the following year.
