BY BRAD DEVEREAUX The Big Horn County School District No. 2 Board of Trustees passed a budget with $11,071,442 appropri- ated for the general fund for the fiscal year 2010-11 at their yearly budget meeting held Wednesday, July The budget, which was published in the Lovell Chronicle on July 15, in- cludes estimated cash plus revenues in the general fund of $9,124,142 for the year. An estimated tax require- ment of $1,947,300 brings the general fund appropria- tions to $11,071,442. Special revenue, which includes an ARRA grant and other grants, is appro- priated at $1,822,622. Major maintenance, which is funded by the School Facilities Commis- sion and includes projects such as the LHS gym park- ing lot resurfacing and a new roof on the central office, is budgeted at $1,143,731 for the fiscal year. Capital projects, which are also funded by the SFC, are budgeted at $1,682,315 for the FY. Food service, which is not funded by the state, get is set at $350,341 and in- cludes a cash carryover of $341. Business manager Lane Black-Partridge said the district would likely have to move some money from the general fund later in the year to cover some of the food service costs. She said school lunches are cur- rently priced too low for the program to be self-sustain- ing. The previous two years, the district received some funding for food service, but not this year. The pupil activity ac- count, which includes all undraising money earned by school clubs and teams, is estimated at $278,034, with a cash carryover of about $68,000. Black-Partridge said this year's budget is a tight one, and the district has had to make some line item cuts to be able to give raises to employees this year. The FY 09 actual rev- enues in the general fund came in at $10,630,381, compared to a projected $11,071,442 for FY 2010, a difference of $441,061. FY '09 included $237,107 in ECA funding, which is not expected this year.

The general fund in- cludes estimated $1,603,548 in tax requirements for a to- tal of $13,954,781, up from $13,451,042 budgeted dur- ing the previous fiscal year. The capital projects ap- propriations are bue]geted at $3,477,219 and rr/aj r main--' tenance is at $1,922,352. The special reve- nue fund is budgeted at $1,547,820, which includes various grant funding. Business manager Rich- ard Parker said the spe- cial revenue fund is slightly up from the previous fiscal year with increased federal funding sources. The district food service budget is set at $388,899 including $370,276 in esti- mated revenue plus $18,623 of cash carryover. The district home rent- al account is estimated to generate $19,220 for the fiscal year, plus $83,691 in available cash for a budget of $102,911.
