<br />IJIBnTTES OF THE REGULAR lilEETING OF THE EDIMA
<br />WARD OF REVIElil, HELD TUESDAY, JULY 15, 1958,
<br />AT 5 : 00 PifL , AT THE EDINA VILLAGE HALL
<br />Board of Review convened at 5:OO P.M,, with members Dickson, Kohler, Tupa and
<br />Bredesen present,
<br />Assessor Creighton was present to explain that his Books of Valuation had not yet
<br />been completed, and to ask that the meeting be continued to Hfonday, August 18.
<br />A delegation consisting o€ Dr. Jose Abullarabe, I&r, F. 0, Hutchinson, and 1.k.
<br />George S. Barnes, Jr., asked for relief from excessive taxes which they must pay
<br />because they belong to the Hopkins School District. It was explained to them
<br />that their valuations cannot be lowered to compensate for this difference; and,
<br />that until they come into Edina-h:orningside School District they must pay the
<br />Hopkins rate for schools; that, even if they should be accepted into Edina-
<br />Llorningside, they will still have to pay their proportionate share of the
<br />outstanding bonded debt of the Hopkins'district as set forth at the time of
<br />their transfer. Hanager Hyde explained that VJalnut Drive residents had petitioned
<br />for transfer to Edina-fforningside School District,'but that this petition had been
<br />denied last fall because of Hopkins' desire to keep the property abutfing County
<br />Road #18 (which may eventually become commercial), It was noted that the vjalnut
<br />Drive area is close to Edina Highlands School, and even closer to the two proposed
<br />new Edina schools proposed to be constructed within the next two or three years;
<br />whereas it is some miles from the nearest Hopkins school, Delegation was informed
<br />that the Edina Village Council has absolutely no control over their problem; that
<br />this is the jurisdiction of the respective School Boards; but it was suggested
<br />that they re-file €or transfer; and, inasmuch as this Council is indisposed to
<br />allow Commercial rezoning along Highway No. 18 , it was thought that this opinion
<br />should be transmitted to the Hopkins School Board for its information,
<br />There was no one else present to complain or recommend, and Tupa moved that Board
<br />of Review Eeeting be continued to Ltonday, August 18, 1958, at 5:Oi) P.f:I.
<br />seconded by Kohler and carried.
