Legal Technicality Slows Consolidation
Mazeppa school consolidation receives a temporary setback, Tuesday that a legal technicality concerning the approved plat had been found and challenged. The point in question stems from the farm of Lenus Miller which was on the plat at the time it was originally sent to the state department of education for approval. During the long delay gaining approval, this farm was set out of Dist. 73 through action of the county commissioners last summer. At the time the plat was approved this farm was apparently overlooked by all concerned.
