APPROVE AGENDA

Mr. Ehrich moved to approve the agenda. Dr. Curry seconded and THE MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY.

 

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

06. Action, May 20, 2003 Option Levy request.

Dr. Robertson moved to approve the option levy as presented. Mr. Ehrich seconded.

 

Mrs. Freske reported that the Finance Committee recommends that the levy option be tabled until fall. The committee suggested that would give the district time to inform the community on how the district is funded by the state, how the money would be spent and how much property owners would actually be paying. She advised that the cost to the district to put the last measure up for a vote was between $4,300 and $6,400. Placing the levy on the May ballot would cost approximately $661.00. Waiting until fall would not help with the budget for 2003-2004. That money would be used for the 2004-2005 school year.
