Budget - Where are we now?
At the board meeting on March 20th, the members worked on the last phase of the 2017-2018 budget process. The board treasurer presented a 2017-2018 budget that had current year revenue matching current year expenses. However, there was a list of items not included in the budget that was presented. The board started the night with a list of items that totaled $239,929 that were not in the presented budget. They went line by line, deleting items, until they got to the figure down to $138,197. They prioritized the programs that were in the $138,197 and will be asking the Accountability and Budget committees to give their feedback on their list. At the April board meeting, they will review the feedback from both committees and make the decision on whether they will spend ending fund balance on any or all of the $138,197.
