Joppa-Maple Grove Ud 38 Board met June 13.
Here is the minutes as provided by the board:
President Stacey Reames called the Special Meeting to order at 6:00 p.m. All members present.
Others present, Bill Biggerstaff, Ben and Gloria Schmidt, Michael Schmidt, Junior and Janet
Krueger, Denise Meyer
Ben addressed the board, saying we were given more money than should have gotten from the
county for at least 8 years. The district received 1,25 million dollars and never questioned it. He
was told the district did question the amount when Mr Biggerstaff thought there was a mistake,
the county told him it was right and that was it. Ben blamed the board for taking the money from
the tax payers of the district knowingly and just not doing anything. The board did do all that it
could, it is the county's job to make sure the amount is right not ours. If the county said we get a
certain amount that's what we get.
