August Board Meeting Changed, Fiscal Year 2016 Budget Hearing Set

The Annawan CUSD 226 Board of Education has changed the August 19, 2015 regularly

scheduled meeting to Monday, August 17, 2015 at 5:00 PM in the District Office. This has been

done so that the preliminary Fiscal Year 2016 Budget can sit for the required 30 days before the

budget hearing.


The Budget Hearing for the Fiscal Year 2016 Budget has been set for

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at 4:45 PM, at the District Office at 501 West South Street,

Annawan, IL 61234.


The Fiscal Year 2016 Budget will be approved at the regular Board

meeting that will start at 5:00 PM on September 16, 2015. We ended the 2015 Fiscal Year on

June 30, 2015 with an unaudited overall deficit of $437,928 compared to a budgeted $841,419

deficit spending plan. $423,000 of that deficit came in the Education Fund, the main fund that

drives our District. In all funds combined, we have an unaudited total of $3,603,951 for a bank

balance. In the big picture, that is great news, and hopefully we can provide the same results

next year in order to extend the life of the District.
