School system budget in flux

With changes in state numbers coming almost daily, the tentative 2011-12 school budget is still in flux but will not change enough to require a millage rate increase. The budget will again be balanced with money from the reserve fund. ‘We continue to try to find out what the real numbers are,’ said superintendent Dr. Bill Truby at the May 10 meeting. ‘Time is growing short.’ This will be the fifth year in a row the board of education has balanced a budget without a tax increase. ’Hopefully the community will see our efforts and appreciate the rainy day fund the board started putting away many years ago,’ Truby said. The spending plan must be completed, advertised and hearings held by June 28, before the fiscal year begins. As of last week the anticipated deficit was at $1.8 million with another state austerity cut that brings the total loss of state funds to 16%.
