MUNDAY—The Munday Consolidated Independent School District established the Maintenance and Operations tax rate at $1.0135 and the Interest and Sinking tax rate at .47 cents during a public hearing and meeting last Monday.
The M&O rate is 5 cents less than 2019-2020 while the I&S is consistent with the board’s goal of paying off the bond early, according to Superintendent Troy Parton.
The trustees adopted the proposed balanced budget, feeling the estimated funding is sufficient to cover all expenses for the 2020-21 school year. They approved budget amendments to zero out accounts or insure positive amounts.
“The amendments were less than any requested in the last five years,” Parton said, giving credit to business manager Hali Kuehler for doing “an amazing job in her first year solo in the position.”
The board added a stipend recommended by Parton for an elementary administrative assistant. There is just so much more for a principal to try to get done, this is necessary for our elementary to provide the services needed for our community, according to Parton.
