School district may have to use fund balance for budget

April 2, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Area School Board held a budget workshop Monday to discuss possible budget cuts in order to save money in the next year’s budget.

Instead of cuts, the board learned from Business Manager Susan Robertson that the district will possibly have to dip into its fund balance in order to finish the school year with a balanced budget, saying projections for expenses this year will probably outweigh the revenue.
She said how much to move from the fund balance depends on what happens between now and the end of the fiscal year.
