Last July, Crystal submitted a query.

After one of the board discussions, the district accountant attended a work session of the New Hope City Council. He acknowledged that a reserve equal to 14 percent of the district annual budget was higher than was necessary and a reserve of 8 percent to 10 percent was adequate to meet the district needs.

citizens of Crystal and New Hope can determine for themselves which better serves their interests.

Some who serve on public boards seem Nike Air Vapormax All White to define respect as always giving deference to staff and never questioning or challenging staff.
