Good morning! 

I hope everyone is enjoying these early autumn days. Read on for October tax deadlines below as well as a couple new funding announcements for highway and infrastructure projects announced by the state this past month. Plus, a new nationwide organization is addressing the skilled labor shortage.

FYI, I am working with KDOT to set some dates for a Business 101 class for those just getting started in their business. I’ll share those as soon as the dates are set.
