Homeowners can stop letting water run to avoid frozen pipes

 

The Sauk Centre Public Utilities Commission says that people can stop letting their water run to avoid frozen water lines.

They had encouraged homeowners to run a pencil-sized stream of water to avoid frozen lines. However, the PUC advises homeowners to still monitor their water temperature to make sure it is at least 40 degrees.

School board meeting tonight

The second regular Sauk Centre school board meeting is tonight (Monday, April 21) at 7:30 p.m. at the secondary school media center. Reports will be given by Superintdent Dan Brooks about the district's Q Comp application to the Minnesota Department of Education as well as an application to MDE for a new Integration and Achievement program in conjunction with area school districts.

Continued review and discussion of the budget cuts will also take place at the meeting. Last Thursday the board heard about new financial figures and options for potential budget cuts. The new list stands about $70,000 to $75,000 short of the targeted figure of $300,000 that the district seeks to trim from the budget.

It's all set to begin at about 8 p.m. after the meeting is closed from 7:30 p.m. for up to 30 minutes for the board to hear student-specific education data. The closing of the meeting is ursuant to Minnesota Statute 13D.01.

Head coach of the Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguars for 21 seasons, B-B-E elementary teacher and boys' basketball coach Dave Montbriand announced his retirement from the coaching ranks today.

Montbriand's letter of resignation and retirement hasn't been acted on by the B-B-E school board, but that will be addressed at their regular April meeting.

"Upon the school board acting on it, the search for a new head coach will begin. I hope to remain in the program at a lower level as I continue to love basketball," said Montbriand.  "I feel very confident that my decision is the right one, and I look forward to supporting the new coach in any way I can."
