Mehlville board honors Prop R volunteers

The Mehlville Board of Education last week honored four residents for spearheading the effort to pass the district’s recent tax-rate increase, Proposition R. Prop R, a 49-cent tax-rate increase, was approved Nov. 3 by a nearly 73-percent margin. The four volunteers honored for their efforts, from left, are: Mark Haefner, Kevin Schartner, Kim Hanan-West and Peggy Hassler, along with Board of Education President Venki Palamand.
