Unit 2 Finance Committee

The Bond County Unit 2 Finance Committee learned Monday evening that money will need to be transferred from the working cash fund to the operations and maintenance fund, which currently has a deficit.

Superintendent Wes Olson said before the fiscal year ends on June 30, the district may have to move as much as $165,000 into the operations and maintenance fund. The plan is to request that the board transfer the first $20,000 during its meeting Monday night.

He told the Finance Committee members there are several reasons for the current fund deficit, the majority of which is the increase in utilities.
