Not all of the measures on the county general election ballot this fall deal with roads. One measure is meant to stabilize the funding of the county extension office, according to Eunice Sahr, Stutsman County Extension agent.
“We’re looking at adding a half mill to the funding for the county agent’s office,” she said. “Right now we’re funded by 2 mills, which is part of the state law. Every county agent’s office is supported by a 2-mill levy. To go over that you have to go to the voters for an increase of up to a maximum of 4 mills.”
