TIME MEETING BEGAN: 7:00 p.m.

NEW BUSINESS
Reiner Musni presented a review of Information Technology Department prior year accomplishments and goals for 2015-2016. An extensive review of the budget requests for the IT Department was presented. He also presented information and budget requests for the Maintenance Department.
Kathy Schuessler presented a list of personnel requests (additional hours and/or positions) for the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Historical information (number of employees, raise history) and salary and benefit information was presented. A discussion of wage increase percentages followed. The Budget committee will recommend approval of personnel requests and 2% wage increase for those not at the top of the scale and 1% for those who are top of the scale.
Discussion of impact of budget recommendations resulting in a deficit for 2015-2016 followed. Concerns were expressed about such deficit spending while past experience has been that projected deficits have not been realized due to reductions in actual spending and increase in actual revenue.
Mr. Ellsworth will prepare a revised operating budget to reflect the additional personnel requests and wage increases. The budget will be provided to trustees for their review prior to the June 15th board meeting at which time a vote to approve or reject it will be taken.

ADJOURNMENT 10:28 p.m.
