West Central Board Approves Tentative Budget

At the August 22nd board meeting, the board approved the Tentative FY19 District Budget and directed Superintendent Markey to place it on public display. The FY19 budget is a deficit budget of $838,667. Of that deficit $426,075 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 FY19. 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 Arnold. All board members were present at roll call. Also present were Superintendent Markey, Kathy Lafary, Joe Peters, Jason Kirby, Shane Tucker, Andrea Frieden, Shaila Ayer, Melinda Frakes, Dan Bowman, Heidi Ford, Wesley Stewart, and Nancy Clark. President Arnold then led the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance.
