On Tuesday at 5:00 pm, the Wawasee Community School Corporation Board of Trustees met to discuss the 2009 budget. That budget must be advertised twice during the coming weeks in area newspapers. Then, on August 19 at 5:00 pm, the Board will hold a hearing on the budget. Adoption of the budget for next year is set for September 9.
The 2009 budget is a little different in that funding for the General Fund will come 100% from the state (from the extra 1% in sales tax). Property tax statements for 2009 should reflect that significant decrease for Wawasee Community School Corporation taxpayers.
Like you, we are increasing our fuel cost estimates. Our 2009 bus and vehicle fuel bill is expected to approach $500,000!
We'll continue working to be as efficient as possible in today's tough economic times.
