School Superintendent Quick to speak at Oroville Chamber

OROVILLE – Steve Quick, Superintendent for Oroville School District, will speak at the next Oroville Chamber of Commerce meeting about the upcoming Maintenance and Operations levy and potential funding ideas for facilities improvements.

The chamber of commerce meets on Thursday, Dec. 8 at Trino’s Restaurant at 1 p.m. All are encouraged to attend to hear about the upcoming levy and current facilities conditions in the school district, as well as ask the superintendent questions.

The current levy ends in 2012, so the voters will be asked to a approve a new two-year M&O Levy in the 2012 for collection in fiscal years 2013 and 2014. A recent facilities survey has been conducted that shows a need for roof repairs in the near term with other improvements needed in the longer term.

In addition to the meeting’s speaker, members will be asked to make nominees for next year’s officers and board members. All chamber members are eligible to submit their own or another member’s name for nomination. If the member accepts the candidates will be voted on at a future meeting. Positions open include President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary. Current officers may also stand for re-election if they choose.
