First Interim Budget Presentation
At the December 10 board meeting, Mr. Corbett Elsen, Chief Financial Officer, presented the 2019-20 1st Interim budget report which compares budget projections made at budget adoption in June 2019 and current updated projections in December 2019. He reviewed the basic assumptions and factors driving the budget, revenue and expenditures, and concluded with the reconciliation of variances for the 2019-20 budget, multi-year projection and ending fund balance (or reserves).
Mr. Elsen also reviewed future operating deficits and diminishing reserves over the next four years should the current parcel tax expire without the passage of the new parcel tax measure (Measure B) and its increased funding. The Board asked questions and discussed drafting a letter to provide facts and clarify the District's lack of control over pension benefit contributions defined by the State. There was no public comment. The board unanimously approved the First Interim budget report with a positive certification.
Report on Developer Fee Accounting
Mr. Elsen reviewed the Developer Fee Resolution 19-7 and the corresponding Schedules 1 and 2 at the December 10th meeting. The Tam District receives roughly one third of the total fees collected in our District, and the rest is shared with our elementary schools. Developer Fees collected must be spent on school facilities related to enrollment growth, such as portable classrooms, additional furniture for portable classrooms and classroom modifications.
