Agenda Consideration

 

Topic:  Financial Data                                                             Item:  IV-B

 

Prepared by:  Catherine Ballard/Barbara Perkins                         Date: 6/29/18

 

Recommendation:

 

That the School Board authorize payment of certain bills/payrolls prior to official board action, and approve the payment of regular bills. That the Board approve the May 2018 Summary of Revenues and Expenditures.   

­­­­­­­­­­ _______________________________________________________________

 

Background and Rationale:

 

We have prepared the check authorization in advance of the School Board meeting, to allow more time for individuals to peruse the bills.  Checks are prepared for bills budgeted and received.  Most payments cannot be made or released until authorized by the School Board action.  This authorization will allow us to make early payments and avoid late charges.  This includes the projected payroll for the 15th of the month.
