To the Editor:

I would like to thank Chas McConnell for his work in identifying the error that was being made at the county in calculating the school impact fees paid by developers in our county.

As reported in the Sky-Hi Daily News last week and on the Web site writeinchas.com, the research he did resulted in the East Grand School District receiving an additional $977,000 in fees.



As I understand it, the county was prepared to collect only $88,000 from two developments in the Winter Park Ranch area. After working with the county to identify the calculation error, the amount collected by the East Grand School District was $1,065,000 instead. This money will be used directly to improve our schools for our children.

I find this commendable and am grateful for Chas’ efforts. If he is able to produce these kinds of results as an individual, imagine what he will be able to accomplish as a county commissioner. I urge everyone to WRITE-IN Chas McConnell on Nov. 4th for county commissioner.
