P. Gaffney reported that the Tax Assessor’s August revised forecast is a 2.14% deficient to revenue,
approximately $900,000. There is no State budget on the horizon, but there are supposed to be stimulus funds.
However whether basic aid districts will receive any stimulus funds or how they will be distributed is unknown.
There is still a 1% rollback in employee salaries built into this year’s budget. Once there is a State budget and a
real deficient is identified, meetings will be set up with the associations to discuss the rollback. The loss in
property taxes will be a recurring issue. Enrollment is down this year from an estimate of 7,640 to currently
