EXETER – Wyoming Area School District Business Manager Tom Melone Tuesday night lauded the efforts of Berkheimer Associates in bringing district taxes current.
Monies have been flowing in, Melone told the school board during its work session. But there are significant monies still outstanding.
In another matter, Melone said the budget provided for an annual expenditure of $100,000 to $110,000 for legal fees covering collective bargaining and other legal matters. He said he anticipated fees to be closer to $89,000 in 2012.
Solicitor Jarrett Ferentino said the collective bargaining process was moving forward. Ferentino said a possible agreement with the union might allow him to share more specific information about that process in the future.
Resident George Race questioned funds directed to student groups for special events.
Board President Frank Casarella said although the district did contribute funds for such events, various parents' associations' fundraising activities mitigated the burden on the district.
Board member Mary Louise Degnan reviewed the proposed bullying policy, which will include travel to and from school, and Internet activities.
Board member Carl Yorina introduced the possibility of term limits for those on the board.
The next regular meeting of Wyoming Area School Board is scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m.
