Budget Control Report – Filed

Check Warrant – March 2019 – Filed

Audit Trail – March 2019 – Filed

Updated draft of the proposed 2019-2020 was shared and discussed.  The proposed budget amount, $3,324,651, is $8,626 less than the 2018-2019 approved budget of $3,333,277.  The Board discussed the amount of unassigned fund balance that would be used to offset the tax levy.  The amount required to keep the tax levy increase within the district’s tax cap of 2.93% would significantly deplete the District’s remaining unassigned fund balance.  It was decided that $400,000 of unassigned fund balance would be applied to the tax levy and the District would seek to override the tax levy limit, which requires a 60% majority approval of the proposed budget.
