Grace likes to ride under the back seat of my pickup. Frankly, I think that's goofy. You'd think she would want to at least look out the windows.

Projected decreases in revenue as property values drop in Moffat County prompts the school district to consider mill levy increase

Moffat County School District may choose to meet the shortfall by increasing the mill levy using a 1997 voter approved override, the 1994 to 1995 state authorized hold harmless levy and/or the 2007 bond redemption levy and that would see property owners pay up to 3 percent more in taxes.
