The option the organizations re quested be promulgated utilizes "the same formula the State Board of Equalization used to establish values on agricultural lands for taxation purposes 'This formula recognizes that the published pri- vate land lease rate includes landlord provided services and fa- cilities which are not included in a state land lease", according to Bourret. He said the four organi- zations feel their proposal should be considered because it takes into consideration the real world of survival in a very low return busi- ness. "I feel that the Board is starting down a very dangerous path by using the private land lease rate to set grazing fees Some les sees may start requesting the same types of services private landown ers provide and that includes ex clusive use of the property," Bourret said. Bourret said the organization's petition noted that the Board could save money by noticing both op- tions at the same time and com- bining the two options in one set of hearings, which would avoid du- plication. The petition, signed by represen- tatives for the Wyoming Farm Bu reau Federation, Wyoming Stock Growers Association, Wyoming Wool Growers Assoclatlon and Rocky Mountain Farmers Union was delivered late Friday afl~rnO~\ A budget of $10,191,092 was approved by the Crook County School District Board of Trustees at the budget hearing held Wednesdayevening, July 19, 1995 in Sundance. Although the hear- ing had been advertised according to law, no comments were head from patrons. Anticipated revenues for the 1995-96 school years as oufllned in the budget report total $8,914,652. The cash balance on hand as of June 30, 1995 is $1,539,762 bringing the total of available monies to $10,454,414. Existing encumbrances of $263,322 reduce that total to $I0,191,092. Aladdin rodeo NRCA affiliated Because of the difficulty of get tlng cowboys to attend the Aladdln Match without receiving points for their performances, the Aladdin Match Committee has voted to go with the Northwest Ranch Cow- boys Association. The dates for this year's rodeo are August 26-27. There will be a barbecue on Saturday night in the Aladdin Centennial Park and a street dance on Saturday evening with music by Crossflre.
