Marlette School Board holds organizational meeting

(MARLETTE) -- The Marlette School Board held their organizational meeting prior to the regular board meeting Monday night and elected Jay Burton as President, Mike Hall as Vice-President, Gina Kraft as Secretary and Sarah Kady as Treasurer. During the regular meeting, Interim Superintendent Alan Broughton discussed the current budget. After reviewing the actual 2012-2013 expenses and the approved 2013-2014 budget, a revised working 2013-2014 budget was presented. The revised working budget shows a deficit of $52,345 as is. Broughton asked the board if they wanted a balanced budget or wanted to go into fund equity. After much discussion, the board asked that the budget be balanced with revenues exceeding expense. The board also requested that Finance Director Cheryl Bruff present the board with ideas for non-personnel cuts for the 2013-14 budget. In other business, Interim Superintendent Broughton updated the board on the bond project. He would like to meet with representatives from the Construction Management Company, E. Gilbert & Sons, to review where the remainder of the funds could be best spent. Broughton informed the board that he will keep them updated.
