Advisory Committee Makes Recommendation
The Pittsville Advisory Committee made their final recommendation regarding the budgetary deficits facing the district at a Special meeting on Monday, July 7. The Committees' consensus after multiple meetings reviewing the information was that the School Board should hold off on any future referendums to exceed the revenue limits, until an actual need for deficit spending occurs. The 2014-15 budget is projected to be a balanced budget at this time, and though the five year budget forecast indicates large deficits are coming, the committee believes a portion of the fund balance should be spent down prior to asking the tax payers for additional funding.
