ASSESSING THE PRESENT SITUATION During the 1977-78 school year, the education fund ran out of T^onies in January. Financial ^> mitments, such as payroll, supplies, equipment and need¬ ed services, could ,iot be met without borrowing. The signifi¬ cance of this fact indicates that only enough money was avail¬ able to meet expenses for '/i of the year. During the winter and spring months, the board borrowed up to the legal maximum in the education fund ($398,000 at 5% interest), against fiscal 1979 taxes. By June, this money was also used up. So in addition the board borrowed up to the legal limit in the building fund ($67,000 at 5^4% interest), against fiscal 1979 taxes. Thus, the district is presently in debt almost '/] million dollars, and must by law. pay back these debts from new taxes, before any new financial commitments can be paid. THE FUTURE In order to make the payroll for July 25, the Board voted to delay payment of monthly bills ($23,000). It now appears that it may be necessary to continue the delay of payment of bills for another month, in order to meet th6 August 10 payroll. Atthe July 13 board meeting, i( was decided to sell working cash fund bonds to help alleviate the financial dilemna. This action will produce about $420,000 ' new money and should have the effect of allowing the distria to begin the 1979 fiscal year only $80,000 in debt, as opposed to 5500,000. Without this new money, it is questionable whether the dist¬ rict will be able to complete the 1978-79 school year, even after borrowing the legal maximum against the taxes due in fiscal 1980. LIONS CLUB PICNIC The Annual Lions Gub Picnic will be August 13 at Deicke Park. Chairman ofthe event will be Bill Kearns, assisted by Lions Don and Dick Kohley. There is a donation of $10.00 per family and please bring a dish to pass. 11 a.m. is the starting time. Al members who have not turned their Barbeque tickets and money in to President Rudsinski, are asked to do so, so that the final tally can be made. The next regular meeting will be Sept. 12 at the Legion Home. September 14 is a Zone meeting at Andre's Steak House in Richmond. Directors and mem¬ bers planning to attend are urged to contact the President or Secretary. Reservations are needed by Sept. 6th.
