First draft of 2016-17 budget presented to BOE

school budget logoDistrict Business Administrator Anthony Sonnacchio presented the first draft of the 2016-17 school district budget to Marcellus Board of Education members during their regular Jan. 25 meeting. Board members received materials to be used throughout the process to ensure community members are presented with a budget that continues to provide Marcellus students with high-quality educational programming.

Mr. Sonnacchio explained the budget development process begins by rolling forward existing programs to 2016-2017 and applying appropriate cost increases for certain items. For next year the budget also incorporates expenditure increases for interest payments associated with the $14.8 million capital project, loan payments for the district’s energy performance contract and additional tuition for residential placements. Going forward, board members will consider other program changes and finalize the budget proposal by the second meeting in April. The adopted budget will go before voters on May 17.

Assuming state lawmakers opt to fully restore the Gap Elimination Adjustment and the district chooses to adopt a tax levy increase equal to the maximum allowable levy based on this year’s tax levy limit calculation (2.91 percent), Marcellus will face a budget gap of $537,398. Among the tools at the district’s disposal to close the gap are: use of reserve funds; outstanding expense-side variables (retirement contribution rates, health insurance premiums); reductions through attrition; other reductions; and increase in state aid through the legislative process.
