Budget Discussion

CR Carey explained how the beginning fund balance was determined.

The board discussed personnel and the possibility of changing the Librarian position to part-time.  The board decided to not extend library hours on July 1st but to stay with the current reduced hours. It was recommended to have the opening time be more consistent and to stagger the closing times. Staff will make changes in personal services to reflect the reduced hours and submit the budget to the board for approval at their May 24, 2012 regular meeting.

Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned at 6:15 p.m.
