West Central budget hearing held with little fanfare

A public hearing was held regarding the 2017 West Central School budget with no concerns from the public. 
The public hearing was held during the regular school board meeting on Sept. 1. The hearing offers the public a chance to hear about the budget, ask questions and voice concerns. 
As in the past, few have attended the public hearing, although superintendent Don Street did a quick review of the 2017 budget, capital projects plan, transportation plan and bus replacement plan. 
Street said the corporation is estimating a little more than $100,000 tuition support reduction from the state. 
“With the different counts, it’s a little hard to project at this time,” Street said in regards to the student enrollment counts that happen twice during the school year. 
The proposed advertised general budget amount is estimated to be $6,440,743. Street said the corporation will most likely have to cut from that amount. The bus replacement plan is budgeted at $199,698 and the capital projects fund is budgeted for $1,062,865.
