Where is the money going?
July 26, 2017
So it begins. The boxes, the pleas, the fundraisers, the woe are the children of Boundary County.

Well, for the third year in a row, Boundary County School District 101 has received $2.4 million per year. That is $200,000 a month. The money comes from the levy that passed for a second time. That money, I believe, can be spent on anything.

So where is close to one quarter of a million dollars per month going?

Seems to me that perhaps, though well intentioned, the energy and effort put into these “drives” “for the children," be channeled into a different community need. Maybe something for the people who are paying the bill.
