     This budget reflects the requirements of
A    the new S-1701 cap law and cap on the
S    tax levy
     Surplus of approximately 1%
E
     Morris Hills Regional offers an excellent
     education at a lower comparative per
     pupil cost than similar districts.
Every Vote Counts!

Three years ago the
  MHRD budget was
  defeated by two votes

As a result, our budget
  was reduced by $407,000
CAPS and Schools…


 Many school expenditures exceed a 4% increase –
  health insurance, utilities, special education out of
  district tuition, fuel oil
 Remember – we also have the S1701 cap
 A defeated budget will result in reduction in force and/or
  reduction in programs
 Future caps would be based on a reduced tax levy
 Remember, our budget proposal is 3.4%
Impact of CAP on MHRD
Budget
 Tighter CAP restrictions will reduce future budgets.
 Money used to reduce tax levy in prior years will have
  to be matched in future years
 Reduced Free Balance will severely restrict the
  available reserve for unforeseen emergencies, facility
  crisis, new special education pupils entering the
  district after the budget is prepared.
 Cash flow will become an issue that must be carefully
  managed.
