The hearing is a part of the council's ongoing budget season.

"For me to say those numbers are accurate - I'm not an actuary", said McEntee.

The school district will provide scholarships worth about $1,250 a year for students who qualify on the basis of need. Those voting against the budget were Fletcher, Ben Twitchell and Jerry Quirion; and those in favor were Steve Russell, Patricia West, Jeff West and Ray Caron. That amounts to an increase of $123 to the average tax bill.

Heckt said she is concerned about summer heat in Bolton Center School, which lacks air conditioning.

Ostlund said School Exec Connect received 24 or 25 applications for the Bemidji job.

With students gathered around him, the Cerro Gordo superintendent pointed to the architectural rendering of what the middle/high school campus will look once the project is complete and exclaimed, "does that not look awesome?"

Members of the Albany School Board voted unanimously during a special meeting March 27 to place Golden on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of an investigation into unspecified complaints. Fletcher proposed to cut the increase by $253,000 more and have taxpayers pay $300,000.

Unless his employment ends, the contract would be automatically extended by one year to June 30, 2021.

The district began looking at renovations with a planning committee consisting of school board members, district staff and community members in 2015. "And I think they have to open up communications with parents".

Peter Thiboutot, the current AOS 92 assistant superintendent and future Winslow superintendent, told the councilors that a cut that deep would devastate the school system.

The increase will give the superintendent position a salary of $186,110.

Referring to his handling of the threat case, O'Brien said the district's solicitor ensure all mandated policies and laws were followed.

The $116.7 million spending plan introduced by the District board is $730,000-or 2.82 percent-over the cap.

"We're deliberating now", said Bernadette Saleh, the board president who has served since 2005.

The amendment to cut $72,000 from the original proposal then was approved.
