MMSD Budget Amendments

Postby Arlene Silveira » Thu Apr 26, 2007 7:43 pm

All- linked are the board's budget amendments. How this works: the Superintendent had submitted recommended budget cuts. If a board member does not want a specific item cut, they can make a budget amendment. This means we have to state what we do not want to cut and then provide an alternative cut. You cannot oppose a cut unless there is an alternative. These amendments are linked.

The vote is Monday night. If you have comments on the amendments, good or bad, please don't hesitate to email at

Thank you.

Arlene, thanks for posting this. I'd like to know that individual board members' amendments are listed after the summary list of amendments at the beginning of the page.

Readers also should be aware that Monday's meeting is being conducted as a workshop (no public appearances) to make sure that there is sufficient time for discussion and vote on the various alternatives to the superintendent's proposals.

Anyone who wants to have input on the superintendent's proposals and/or board counter proposals should contact board members (contact information is at: You also can send e-mail to all board members at
