The board asked her if she talked with the administration, and she said she discussed her concerns with Banks.
McEntee said board policy states the board will listen to all public comments but has no obligation to comment and will take no action. There was no other discussion from board members.
• The board will continue with the third Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for regular board meetings. However, Bob Steingreaber requested that “maybe two times a year, we rotate to different communities.” Board members agreed. He said the conservation board tries to meet in different communities.
• Janet Phelps, school treasurer, gave her annual report to the board, covering the 2012-13 fiscal year. In the general fund, the district began the fiscal year with $2,494,370.97. It ended with $2,848,195.55. The school house fund began the year with a $1,793,406.07 balance and ended with a balance of $2,084,124.65. In the financial report, Dennis Gourley stated that the Certified Annual Report has been timely filed to the state thanks largely to the efforts of former Board Secretary Robyn Nolting. Gourley presented the Certified Annual Financial Report. The report was filed with the state on Sept. 16. The board discussed the $500,000 debt the school has. Superintendent Ewell said the QZAB notes have been paid, but she thinks the $500,000 still outstanding is from the Douds project.
