Delta County Joint School District #50 will save an estimated $14,000 by cancelling the school board election scheduled for November.
Three school board seats were to be filled, but just three candidates filed petitions for those seats. At its monthly meeting, Sept. 19, the school board was expected to adopt a resolution cancelling the election and declaring the positions filled by Ron Germann, Jan Tuin and Richard Hypio. All three will be sworn into office at the November school board meeting.
At their March 5 meeting Commissioners Doug Atchley, Mark Roeber and Don Suppes made two appointments to the county planning commission. Steve Shea was reappointed for a three-year term.
