During its Monday evening special meeting, the Clay Community School Board of Trustees voted 3-2, with Ron Scherb and Forrest Buell voting against the motion. Board members Dottie King and Rob Miller were not present.
"This budget maintains our current staffing," Business Manager Mike Fowler said. "As long as we continue on the current path we are on, as long as the state doesn't make anymore cuts, then we should be able to make it."
"I thought there would be more discussion on the budget," Scherb said. "Because of that, I won't be able to accept this budget tonight."
Buell agreed with Scherb, and voiced his own concerns regarding the money that is spent by the corporation per pupil based on location.
"The Clay City people pay more taxes," he said. "The money should go where the taxes go."
There were questions raised by Buell concerning the money spent for the Elementary Building Renovation project and where that money fits into the budget, as well as a break down of the Rainy Day Fund.
However, the vote did pass with a motion from Jennifer Kaelber and a second from Amy Adams.
The next meeting of the Clay Community School Board of Trustees will be 7:30 p.m., Oct. 14, in the Auditeria at Clay City Jr./Sr. High School.
