Superintendent Ryan Bergeson reported the year-to-date revenue totals of $1,207,550.97 which is a decrease of $64,585.40 from last year. Year-to-date expenditures are $2,272,115.48 which is an increase of $299,806.66 from last year, according to Bergeson.
“The increase in expenditures is largely attributed to the completion of the All Weather Track,” the superintendent told the board. “A portion of those expenditures will be offset by funding from the Land Water Conservation Fund Grant.”
The budget numbers result in a deficit year-to-date of $1,064,564.51.
“This deficit trend will continue until we begin to receive our local tax revenue in January,” said Bergeson.
