Let the voting begin

The first entry in the Topic’s Christmas Tree Decorating Contest is the tree pictured above. It can be found in a Timber Lake or Isabel business. (We aren’t telling where because we want people to seek out and discover the trees in local businesses themselves.) People’s Choice ballot boxes will be in place at Western Dakota Bank in Timber Lake and Isabel and the Timber Lake Topic by Monday, November 27. Businesses are encouraged to have their trees decorated soon. Voting will end on Dec. 13, and the winners will be announced in the Topic’s Dec. 20 issue. One winner in Timber Lake and one in Isabel will receive a delivery of apple cider and Christmas treats for their office crew, compliments of the Topic.

School board will appeal taxation of rental housing

With the school board’s support and advice from the school attorney, Timber Lake Superintendent Dan Martin is appealing the taxation of school-owned teacher housing.

Martin told the board at the November 15 regular board meeting that he and Business Manager Amanda Hermes had filled out the PT-17 appeal forms which are due in March.

The action came in response to the Dewey County Commission’s decision to withdraw the tax-exempt status of rental housing owned by the school district following a ruling by the Office of Hearing Examiners in a case involving the Highmore-Harrold School District and Hyde County. The ruling cited state law, which says that property owned by a school district qualifies for exemption from property tax IF it is “directly used in carrying out the primary object of the educational institution.”
