This Tuesday, May 24, is the School Board's budget work session #11. Yes, Moses was provided only 10 commandments, but our school board budget work sessions go to 11. (Sorry about the mixed metaphor, but I couldn't resist.)
There is a period for public comment. Please DO COME and contribute or listen. This is likely to be our final work session on the budget for the upcoming school year, although formal and final approval of the budget will likely be on May 31.
I am caught up on budget email, and I think I have responded to all the questions I received. If I didn't respond to you, I apologize, and please email me again at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have come up with my proposed list of $912k in reductions that we need to make from the proposed budget, but I will keep listening.
And I want to thank everyone who has commented. Your inputs have been extremely helpful, and I am humbled by the amount of time that you have all put into this process.
The meeting is at 7 pm on Tuesday, May 24, at the Council chambers at City Hall.
