BKW seeks comment in forum and on paper

BERNE — With a proposed $21.77 million budget for the 2014-15 year, Berne-Knox-Westerlo is collecting thoughts and suggestions from residents.

A survey is available online and in the superintendent’s office. A community forum on the spending plan will be held at the end of March with the date to be determined.

The surveys should be submitted by March 5 for the budget advisory committee to review. It will remain open until March 10, when school board members meet next to discuss the budget.

The board will adopt a budget proposal by late April ahead of a public vote on May 20.

Interim Superintendent Lonnie Palmer recommended the budget proposal on Feb. 24 with no tax increase and several cuts and consolidation plans to save on non-instructional costs. The details of the plan can be read in The Enterprise and on the district’s website.
