Utica school board election comes down to one vote

Utica school board election comes down to one vote

"I call it a community fund because voters have to approve its creation and also have to approve the release of the money when the time comes", Apthorpe said.

The board voted unanimously at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 15, to approve a "financial option" that provides a starting point for the board to come up with an initial 2018-19 budget.

Expect little change on the school board.

The final tally had Lambalzer receiving 812 votes, Linderman earning 776 votes, Pratt receiving 771 votes and Fiegl getting 729 votes. "While I will fight against the closing of any building, I do feel the need to acknowledge the fact that Smart was the original school proposed for closure". He is running to finish the remaining two years of the three-year term.

Van Heukelum said he likes that the School Board and City Council have a good working relationship and that they don't "play games" with each other, but he fears these guidelines could be used as an excuse to shut down conversations about funding.

Because the report shows a disproportionate number of students of color identified for special education services, the Iowa Department of Education has told the district to work with an adviser. District voters will additionally be voting on a proposed $21.2 million budget.

The new inter-local agreement is a fusion of both proposals that would see the City and L.P.S each contribute a little over a million dollars from their budget per year.

There are also two candidates for the board of education, James Maio and Martin Kelly. A public hearing will be held prior to the board's action.

The incident was quickly brought under control due to the quick response of the district's school resource officer.

It would increase local tax revenue for the budget by $209,769, to a new total of $10.488 million.

Lake Shore Central's budget passed. Also, four candidates were competing for the three open board seats. Barbara Dayton, the school board president, is running unopposed to keep her seat. Newcomer and CCS alum Matt Schuermann will join them on the board, defeating Nancy Areliusson for the three available seats. But education watchers in the state are already forecasting tough budgets a year from now.

Botana's new list of proposals includes some of the suggestions made by City Councilor Justin Costa, a former school board member who described the superintendent's original list of cuts as a "parade of horribles".

While smaller than proposed by the school board, the $110.6 million budget represents a $4.9 million, or 4.6 percent, spending increase from the current year and would result in a 5 percent increase in the school portion of the tax rate. Roy-Hart voters approved the budget, 218 to 64.

Karam added that there are no layoffs and a zero percent tax levy. Barker's budget was approved 114 to 30.
