Briefly Noted: School District Working on Budget

Category: News || By

McKeesport Area School Board is working on its 2012-13 budget and will have a preliminary spending plan available at next week's meeting, School Director Tom Maglicco said.

The budget is being prepared by Business Manager David Seropian, Maglicco said at March's board meeting.

Also at the board's March meeting, school directors approved by 8-1 vote a motion to advertise for architecture services for future projects, specifically the replacement of the high school roof. School Director Steven Kondrosky was the sole vote against the motion.

The board also voted to transfer $1 million from the district’s general fund to the capital reserve fund and to authorize the advertisement of bids for the new roof.
Maglicco pointed out that although the board is transferring $1 million the total cost of the roof may not be that much. At the board’s February meeting, Maglicco said that several expenditure increases and state funding cuts would make 2012-13 a challenging budget year and cautioned the board to monitor its spending considering future construction plans.
