"A state audit showed that $2 million of that money was used to cover operating expenses, mostly for the town's troubled water operations. Ever since then, the town has relied increasingly on revenue and tax anticipation notes to make ends meet."   [BN] 12.1.16

Upsize NO!

Evans Voted NO in November!

Thank you to the voters in Evans who voted no to the referendum to increase the size of the board from 3 to 5. The vote was almost 2 to 1 in favor of maintaining a 3-person board.  Evans, a small town of 16,000 residents, has very serious money issues from the water tower project that has yet to be built. The original cost to the project was $5 million and now will cost us, the Evans taxpayers, $20 million to build. The town has got to be joking to think we could afford to add two more paid employees with benefits such as health care insurance and retirement to our overstretched budget! Thank you good folks of Evans! You did the right thing. 


Stay tuned to the upcoming news and events schedule for this late spring.

Visit "Upsize no.org" for more information

We the voters made this decision to downsize in 2009. It is against the citizens' will to upsize the board while we are in a financial crisis! To add two more members would have costed taxpayers a million dollars over the next decade-Thanks for voting no in November 2017!
