HOWARD — Wednesday’s meeting of the East Knox school board was largely routine, except for the report given by treasurer Jessi Busenburg.
She said the district received $20,000 less in tax revenues for the general fund this July than it got last July, and July 2013 expenses were $2,100 more than the district spent last July. Busenburg also said the most current simulation from the state budget bill indicates the district will receive no increase in state funds through the 2014-15 school year.
Besides approving routine fiscal reports and actions, the board approved a shared service agreement with the Knox County Career Center for career-based intervention services for the 2013-14 school year and extended an existing agreement with Direct Energy for a term of 36 months at a rate of 5.0 cents/kWh.
It also approved the installation of sidewalks behind the high school. The sidewalks will run behind the visitor’s stand and connect with the sidewalk behind the high school and on into Howard. Gray Concrete will do the work at a cost of $7,500, to be paid from permanent improvement funds.
