The Board of Directors approved the budget with a local tax dollar need in the amount of $4.9 million at their regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday. Ron Bishop, general manager, said the estimated property tax levy requirement is also down, estimated at 4.497 cents/$100 valuation compared to 5.52 cents last year. When asked about the reason for the drop, Bishop said that some of last years big budget items, such as the Prairie/Silver/ Moores Flood Control Project construction was delayed until this coming year, so it wasnt necessary to include new tax requirements.</span>&nbsp;&#8212;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.agnet.net/85/nws/7637">Full Story &raquo;</a></span> <div class="agnetstoryend">&nbsp;</div> </div> <div class="agnetstory"> <span class="agnetleadhead"><a href="http://www.agnet.net/85/nws/7634">Ireland's quest for third circuit title builds steam</a></span><br> <span class="agnetleadtext">Pretty Prairie, Kan. -- As a two-time Ram Prairie Circuit Champion, Weston Ireland has conquered some tough saddle bronc horses over the years.
