With three months remaining in Fiscal Year 2016, the Hardy County School system is watching expenditures like a hawk.
“If everything stays as encumbered, we will have $5,000 left at the end of the year,” Financial Director Veeta Burgess told the Hardy County Board of Education at the March 21 meeting.
“When it comes to legal fees, utilities and now we’re purchasing a car, I don’t know what they will do. We’ve spent $61,000 more for electricity to date than last year. The state has been slow in getting money to us. We have to watch the bank account.”
The next meeting of the Hardy County Board of Education will be held on Monday, April 4 beginning at 6 p.m. at the central office, 510 Ashby St. in Moorefield.
The board will host the 2016 Teacher of the Year and Service Person of the Year reception on Monday, April 19 at Moorefield High School beginning at 5 p.m.
The board meeting scheduled for Monday, April 19 will be held at MHS beginning at 6 p.m.
The public is invited to attend all Board of Education meetings.
