Nebo Board to Seek Tax Notes Thursday, April 10. 1975, THE HERALD, Provo, Utah-Page 25 Jefferson School Falls to Draw Sale Bids NEITHER STORM, nor sleet, nor hail can stop a gardener who is determined to have spring. Here Duane Hilton, 936 S. Main St., Orem, plants blooming petunias in front of his house, despite the threat of more storms. Fallowing failure to get a bid Tuesday on the Jefferson School property in Springyille, Nebo School Board authorized district officials to negotiate a sale. In other business, board members approved the storm drain proposal for the Grant School in Springville, discussed the location of the warehouse at Payson High School, approved the advertising of tax anticipation notes, voted support for the Utah State Junior livestock Show held annually in Spanish Fork, approved the addition of seven teachers to the district, and received a presentation from Nebo Education Association. Supt. Joe Reidhead told the board that storm drain construction costs for Grant School in Springville would be pro-rated with the city, based on how much paved area each owns. "I think the council has been real fair about it," he said. Concept Approved Board members approved the concept of joining Payson High's proposed warehouse-vocational building to the rear of the existing structure because of the savings involved. The board also approved the purchase of a lot in Payson for use by the vocational education :lasses involved in home construction. Clerk Erroll Smith requested authorization from the board to place $1.5 million in tax anticipation notes. "I think the short term rates are as low as they will ever be, and I request authority to receive bids now instead of June," he said. Board members approved the request. The board also granted $150 to the Utah Junior Livestock Show, held each summer in Spanish Fork. "We should let them know we are pleased with the program," Mr.Tiptonsald Teacher Ratios Cited Boyd Goodrich, assistant superintendent, presented enrollment figures for the district and discussed the student-teacher ratio. "If we can hire two more teachers for Payson and one for Springville, our student - teacher ratio will be virtually the same for all three high schools," he said. Under the plan, the ratio would be 25.32 students per instructor in Payson, 25.33 in Spanish Fork and 25.44 in Springville. Mr. Goodrich pointed out that Spanish Fork has a smaller central staff than the other two schools. He also added that 47 new students have been received in Payson during the present school year. After considerable discussion, the board approved the hiring of seven additional instructors for the district, providing funds will be available. The board discussed the authorization of a one-mill transfer of capital funds to the maintenance budget as well as authorization by the legislature. to levy one mill for hazardous routes, field trips and activity transporttion. Levy Action Delayed Board members agreed not to increase the mill-levy without allowing time for public input. It was determined to consider the levy increase at the last May meeting. "I think this is the kind of thing we need to take to the people," Mr. Tipton reported, adding that a misunderstanding could result because of a pledge not to raise the capital mill levy when the additional bond sales were approved two years ago. \P5OXOFF!
