To
the
Board
of
Apportionment
&
Taxation:
Thank
you
for
this
opportunrty
to
share
a few
thoughts
with
you
regardingtheBoardofEducation'sFY2013
budget
request.
As
youknow,
the
Board
of
Education
presented
you
with
a
budget
request
in
March
of
thisyear
callingfor
total
school spending
of
$16,169,000.
Compared
to
the
total
currentyear
appropriation
of
$15,548,000,
the
school request amounted
to
an increase
of
$621,000
or
4Ya.
Mindful
ofthe
fiscal
challenges
that
you
face,
including the impact
of
declining
assessments
for
many
of
thepropertiesonthegrand
list,
I
wantto
tell
you
that
I
believe
the
school
district
budget
request can
beresponsibly
reduced
by
about
$200,000.
That
wouldbring
us
to
an
FY2013 of
$15,969,000
-
or
about
$421,000
over the
FY2012 appropriation
of
$15,548,000.
That's
about
a2.7%o
increase.
I
amprepared
to
recommend
that
sort'of
a
reductionto the Board
ofEducation.
I
believe
we
can
make
that reduction
with
minimal
loss
of
current
staff. It
will
probably
mean
just
restoring one
of
the four
librarians that
we
had
to
eliminate
from
the budget
a
couple
of
years
ago
-
rather thanthe three that
the Board
hadhoped
torestore.
Andit
will
mean
less
in the way
of
curriculum
development
and
staff training
that
we
were
hoping
to accomplish. But
I
believe we
can manage
it.
In
the
category
of
goodnews,
I
reviewedour
payroll
and
medical
benefit
rollstoday
and
was
able
toverify
that the
number
of
Board
of
Education
employees
who
are
enrolled
in
the
Anthem benefit
pro$am
has
actually
been
reduced
by
12
since
the
school
district
turned
the
benefitprogramover
to
the
cityonJuly
1,
2011.
That should
mean
that
the
new
positions
that
the Board
of
Education
is
hoping
tofund for
nextyear
canbe
added
within
the
city's
existing
estimates
of
benefit
costs.
