President Miller asked if there were any comments, questions or written communications. There were no requests for the Board of Education.
Mr. Littleford stated the purpose of the meeting was to hold a public hearing on the amended budget for the 2015-16 school year. At that time, he turned the meeting over to Financial Consultant Dean Keller.
Mr. Keller reported that the district auditor recommended moving the technology lease payment from the Education Fund to the Bond and Interest Fund. This movement created a Bond and Interest Fund expense when none was budgeted for thus creating the need for the amendment process.
Mr. Keller reported that no changes have been made to the FY16 Amended Budget since his last report in May. He reviewed the changes recommended by the district auditor and the items changed to reflect more closely utilities, plant maintenance, and health life safety. Mr. Keller stated that the district had expended 90.9% of the salaries and 76.3% of the benefits in the Education Fund Expenditures at the end of May, therefore, the district was within target.
At that time, Mr. Littleford asked if there were any questions regarding the budget amendment by the Board of Education or audience. There were no questions or comments received.
At 6:23pm, Dr. Clarke made a motion to adjourn from the special board meeting. Mrs. Miller seconded the motion.
On roll call vote:
