The first City of St. Michael, City of Albertville and St. Michael-Albertville School District No. 885 meeting of the year is set for 6 p.m. tonight, March 30, at St. Michael City Hall in the council chambers.
The meeting is open to the public.
The three governing bodies from the STMA area – the two city councils and the board of education – attempt to meet each month there is a fifth Monday. The next one will occur in June.
Tonight’s agenda will include a presentation from Family Youth Community Connections (FYCC), which serves as the community’s de-facto family recreation entity. Sandra Greninger and Nicole Rice, the FYCC’s two employees, will conduct the report and answer questions from the elected officials and city staff.
The St. Michael-Albertville School District will discuss building capacity and the ongoing campaign for more school funding at the state level. Additional school funding has been presented at the 2015 legislative session, ranging from $157 million in “new” money to more than $700 million. Local education leaders are hoping that puts a small dent in the inequitable funding received at the state level.
Rice will also lead an update on the STMA “Beyond the Yellow Ribbon” campaign, along with Albertville’s Brad Cedergren.
There will also be discussion on a solar garden and proposed electricity cost savings plans for the community.
