Exceeding revenue cap by $500,000 proposed to Ellsworth School Board


The Ellsworth School Board heard a 2011-12 budget proposal Monday which would include exceeding the state-imposed revenue cap by $500,000, not the up to $1.3 million voters authorized for the coming year and two more in a referendum this spring.

Superintendent Barry Cain made the recommendation while discussing a budget forecast model compiled with input from Baird and Associates, district auditors, citing a reduction in expenditures this year.
