West Central Board Approves FY18 "Deficit" District Budget

At the August 23rd meeting of the West Central School Board, they approved the Tentative FY18 District Budget and directed Superintendent Markey to place it on public display. The FY18 budget is a deficit budget of $929,704. Of that deficit $343,375 is expenditures for current life safety projects.

This deficit is in part due to the fact that revenue for the life safety projects was received in FY16; however, the work is being completed in FY18.

Funds are available and were designated for these projects. Expenditures will be monitored closely to make every attempt to reduce expenditures and come in under budget.

The meeting was called to order at 6:00 p.m. in the elementary cafeteria by Board President Paul Anderson. All board members were present at roll call except Mike Lenahan. President Anderson then led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance.
