I hope you are all finding various ways to beat the heat as we deal with some difficult weather and air pollution. As we continue to face drought conditions, remember to limit outdoor fires, and reduce water use at home. The haze that has covered the state recently is due to forest fires just across the border in Canada.

Improvements at Roseville Area High School
Thanks to the building bond that passed with community support in 2017, Roseville Area High School will look very different this fall. I met with school officials yesterday to tour the updated areas and I am so excited for our students! Improved areas for hands-on skill building and education will truly prepare our students for life after high school. I can’t wait for construction to be completed so the whole community can see it all.
MN Tax Changes go into Effect
Minnesota tax code changes were signed into law on July 1, 2021. The changes relate to unemployment compensation, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness, and other retroactive conformity provisions affecting tax years 2017 through 2020. The Minnesota Department of Revenue updated Minnesota tax forms for tax year 2020 to reflect these changes. If you filed a 2020 income tax return that included unemployment compensation or PPP loan forgiveness, the Department of Revenue will either adjust the return or ask you to amend.
