This might be surprising to some of you, but the truth is that most teens choose sports, art, reading, music, having a job, future opportunities, or spending time with family and friends over using substances!

Congrats, Andy and Doug!

Our office is mailing revenue neutral rate information to taxpayers this week. You may receive a document similar to what we included here. New Kansas statute requires any taxing jurisdiction that exceeds its revenue neutral rate from the previous year to provide notification of its public budget hearing. This is not a bill, and no action needs to be taken. It is simply informational. The document includes notes explaining information in the notice.

You can find a summary of all hearings for taxing entities in Harvey County, sign up for future notifications by email, or read more about revenue neutral rates, here: www.hvcoksvote.gov/rnr-infoPhotos from Harvey County KS - Elections's post

Welp, it's Aug. 10 and *checks calendar* school starts for some Harvey County kids this week? It's an exciting/nerve-racking/memorable/hopefully fun time of year. Lots of kids are getting familiar with their back-to-school routines. Parents and teachers, too.

So here's our reminder for drivers to be extra attentive the next few weeks. Pay attention for kids using crosswalks and on sidewalks. Bring it down a notch in school zones. Be ready to stop if a school bus has its stop arm extended.

We're thankful for all of our local educators for all of their work prepping to welcome returning students. Keep up the great work. We hope everyone has an awesome school year!Welp, it's Aug. 10 and *checks calendar* school starts for some Harvey County kids this week?

A map can be pretty handy when navigating our three county parks. Whether it's walking our trails, locating our rental facilities or giving directions to friends and family coming out to spend some time together, this map could be a big help to guiding around Camp Hawk, East Park or West Park.A map can be pretty handy when navigating our three county parks.
