Royall finance and facility meeting set for Jan. 7

Mark Gruen

By MARK GRUEN

Royall School District superintendent

Great news: The Royall School District has only two years of debt payment left after this year.

As we have been reporting over the past few years, we are doing well financially. (Sorry about the tax increase this year, and as confusing as it may seem, part of the reason for our increase was due to our taxes being way down in the prior two years, which was due to us accomplishing some very large projects without going to referendum.)

That said, business manager Jeff Lankey and I would like to invite you to a finance and facility meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7, in the middle school commons area. We want to discuss the future of the district — our needs and wants — and an acceptable mill rate for the Royall School District.

If you cannot make the meeting, I have reserved from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8, for my next lunch with the superintendent. It is very simple: Join me for lunch to discuss whichever topic you choose, such as budgeting, scheduling, staffing, or even politics. I would appreciate it if you called to let me know you were coming so we could plan for the appropriate space. I am also willing to come to you with information. Please give me a call and let me know where you would like to meet, when you would like me to attend, and what to prepare for, and I will be there.

See you at school.

Gruen can be reached at (608) 462-2600.
