A date has been set for the Grant City Council to hold a public hearing on the proposed 2009-2010 fiscal year budget.
Tuesday, September 8, has been chosen for the budget hearing which will be held at City Hall.
The hearing will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
According to the budget document, which can be found on page six of this week’s newspaper, the proposed tax asking for 2009-2010 would be $123,500. The figure is $5,400 above the tax asking from one year ago.

The proposed budget to be considered by the supervisors came as a result of cutting $300,000 at a meeting earlier this month.
Supervisors agreed to cut more than $200,000 from the ‘at large’ road and bridge fund.
As a result of their action, the fund will now be reduced to $1.55 million.
Other large budget cuts made at the meeting were more than $24,000 from the county sheriff’s budget; $15,200 from the budget for the weed control authority; and $20,000 from the District #6 budget.
As a result, the supervisors will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, September 8.
The hearing will be held at 10 a.m. in the Antelope County Supervisors’ room at the Antelope County Court House. The meeting is open to the public.
The St. Boniface / St. Bonaventure Parish Picnic was held August 24th on the St. Boniface grounds. Over 125 parishioners were in attendance to enjoy a bar-b-que sponsored by the Stewardship Committee with assistance from the Parish Pastoral Council. The Stewardship Committee of the parish unveiled their selection for the 2008-09 Volunteer of the Year. Ben & Anna Meis were chosen for the many ways they give of their time and talent to the parish. Their largest contributions include their being instrumental in the growing of the Parish Auction to be the success that it is today. Ben has headed up the Parish Auction for the past five years. Anna has been the chair of the St. Boniface Gem Club Dinner for the past 4 years. Both, along with their son Austin and daughter Paige, are willing to help, anytime they are asked.

CARD OF THANKS:
A big “Thank You” for the well wishes, food, calls, flowers and stops at the house from my little surgery.
Thank you to everyone that made it here for the evening meal last week! It is really great when that many people come. And thank you to the Tune Tappers for playing for us. We always enjoy it when they are here. Thank you to the board members for putting together the salad bar. Everything was very, very good! I think the “Name That Tune” game brought some good laughs too. Pearl Fritz got first place, winning half of a watermelon. And Herman Starman won the free meal door prize. Thanks again everyone!
Elgin Community Center

We greatly appreciate the concern shown to us during Benny’s lengthy illness and more recently I the heartfelt expressions of sympathy at his passing. Our gratitude goes out to Pastor Kuhfal and Vicar Schupe for their immediate and ongoing spiritual care. We also take much comfort in the many beautiful cards, visits, gifts of food, floral arrangements and memorials. We treasure the stories you’ve shared as well. God has truly blessed us with wonderful friends!
