After three-and-a-half hours of deliberate decision-making, the Pella School Board reached an agreement on suggested adjustments to the 2010-2011 District budget. Wednesday night’s special session meeting cut expenses or altered revenue sources to total up $951,384 in the district’s budget to balance funds that were lost due to reductions in state spending.
The largest single line item adjustment came in the form of $158,000 in revenue that will be made up by increasing the instructional support levy to 8 percent; but efforts to cover the budget gap went down to adjustments as little as $1,000. Adjustments were made by increasing revenue sources and reducing, splitting, or simply cutting various expenses, with the final result to be presented at the upcoming Pella School Board meeting on Monday.
