It came in the mail over the weekend and I need to give it a quick look before today’s Business meeting.
At Mike Miernicki’s suggestion I met with Finance Director Bill Hanson a couple weeks ago. Bill generously gave me two hours to review the basic budget which had been placed as an ad in the Duluth News Tribune. It was preliminary and I wanted to review it as a refresher course on Minnesota School finance which is reputedly one of the most complicated in the US. I’d planned to write an extensive post on the meeting but as my regular readers know I’ve been AWOL.
No excuses. I’ve been keeping pretty busy.
