Morrill School District Patrons,

As we navigate the discussions surrounding the solar farm project south of Stegall, it is important to acknowledge the uncertainties and assumptions that often accompany such activities.

In order to foster a better understanding of the project. We have arranged for representatives of the project to host an open house presentation and question-and-answer session. This opportunity will enable us to gather information and engage in constructive dialogue about the project's implications.
