The Extension Council meeting will be held on October 13, 2015, at 8 p.m. at the Page County Extension office. If you cannot attend, call me by 1:15 p.m. on October 13.

The auditor’s comments regarding Debbie Swanson have been a contentious issue at the Extension Council meetings. I think some members view the comments as an administrative item. Debbie Swanson views the comments as an issue of integrity and trust.

Items on the tentative agenda include:
• Approve financial reports and expenditures (vote)
• Maybe a Building report (possible vote)
• Page County Schedule of Findings (possible vote)
• Page County Extension program updates and upcoming events (possible vote)
• ISU Extension and Outreach updates and reports from Program Specialists (possible vote)
