Legislative Update

August 7, 2017

Dear Neighbors,
I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable summer! Here are a few quick updates from the Capitol:
Capitol Restoration Celebrations this Summer!
After four years of repairs and restorations, our State Capitol is now fully open to the public once again! This beautiful building has been returned to it's former glory, and there will be events this August to celebrate this beautiful edifice of our democracy. You and your family are encouraged to attend any of the fun events that are planned.
Most of the events are free, or offered at very low cost. You can learn more by visiting www.mn.gov/mymncapitol
Event Details
When: Friday, Saturday & Sunday Aug 11-13
Where: Minnesota State Capitol Grounds
75 Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Saint Paul, MN 55155
Learn more about tours, live music, children's events, and fireworks by visiting www.mn.gov/mymncapitol
Homestead Credit Refund Info Deadline is August 15
For those of you who qualify for a Homestead Credit Refund or a Renters Credit Refund, the filing deadline is August 15th. This refund benefits homeowners and renters with high property taxes in relation to their incomes.
As a general rule-of-thumb, if your property taxes are about 2% or more of your household income, you probably qualify. Income limits are $108,659 for homeowners and $58,879 for renters.

Night to Unite/Neighborhood Night Out
August 2 was a lovely evening to be out and celebrating Neighborhood Night Out in Eagan and Night to Unite in Burnsville. My appreciation to all who participated in these events. These activities provided a great opportunity for neighbors to talk and also learn more about community resources.
Hunchback of Notre Dame at Eagan High School
I went to see The Hunchback of Notre Dame at Eagan High School last weekend. It was a musical version with songs from the Disney film and it was outstanding. I was particularly impressed with the costumes for the gargoyles and statues. We are so fortunate to have this level of talent in our community. Congratulations to everyone that made this production possible for a job well done!
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
