Light agenda at Antigo board meeting|
With most action delayed until a series of special meetings in early November, the Antigo school board will work through a light agenda for its regular October meeting on Tuesday.
The board will convene at 7 p.m. in the high school media tech room.
The main item of business will be scheduling a series of special meeting dates, including setting meetings for adoption of the budget and tax levy, interviewing candidates for a board vacancy and holding a governance workshop.
At a special meeting last week, the administrative staff recommended delaying final approval of the 2013-14 tax levy and budget until the first week in November. The state has extended the deadline for certifying the levy to Nov. 6 as lawmakers worked through a last-minute package of property tax relief and school aid figures.
The district’s latest budget numbers are projecting a 7.56 percent increase in the mill rate. It is expected to rise 60 cents, to $8.54 per $1,000 of equalized valuation.
Earlier estimates had placed the increase upwards of 10 percent, or 80 cents per $1,000, but some final budget cuts and extra state dollars trimmed that total.
Director of Business Services Mary Jo Filbrandt is expected to give an update on the levy and budget with the most recent numbers.
The board is continuing to accept applicants for a vacant board position through Monday, Oct. 28, with interviews likely taking pace at a special meeting early next month as well.
Candidates must drop off a letter of interest with Board President Mike Boldig at the Administrative Office on Dorr Street by the deadline. The applications should state, in 50 words or less, why the person wishes to be considered for the vacancy plus a summary of qualifications.
Any qualified elector of the district may apply. He or she must be a U.S. citizen 18 years or older and must reside in the district.
Interested persons may call the district office at 715 627-4355, extension 1236, if they have questions.
The successful candidate will serve until the April, 2014 general election. At that time, voters will select four school board members.
The remainder of Tuesday’s agenda is very light. It includes:
—accepting the resignations of Margaret Domke as high school lunch assistant.
—acting on the resignation of Sue Immel as pupil services administrative assistant and determining whether the position will be filled.
—hiring a kindergarten/SAGE teacher at North Elementary School.
—and reviewing a task force survey request.
