Though no comments from the audience were received during Monday’s budget hearing, the Pella School Board spent a considerable amount of time during the meeting discussing various budget adjustments to help cover the shortfall left by the ten percent across-the-board cut in state spending.

Ultimately, the board adopted the 2010-2011 District Budget, which included a property tax rate of $13.99 per $100,000 taxable valuation. The Pella School Board also set May 10th as the date for a budget amendment hearing, adopted the 33 cent Physical Plant and Equipment Levy, and approved plans for roof repairs to district buildings, among other issues.
