Budget Documents from the March 15, 2017 Special Board Meeting
An error was discovered on the recommended budget impact page of the budget handouts that were shared with the Board and public. It is an amount from last year (2016-17) that was incorrectly carried forward into the spreadsheet. The number entered in the 2016-17 shared revenue line of the working budget document was $600,391, and it should have been $1,100,391.  The number carried forward understated the tax impact for the proposed budget. The net impact to taxation increases from 4.22% to 6.43% with the change. It does not impact the 4.86% expenditure increase change from last year’s budget.

The Board of Directors held a special meeting on March 15, 2017 to discuss the error. The Superintendent was directed to look at reductions for the Board to discuss at their March 22, 2017 meeting. The revised budget documents with the $500,000 added in are below.
