Agenda Consideration

 

Topic:  Financial Data                                                                                                                                        Item:  III-B

 

Prepared by:  D. Thompson/ B. Perkins                                                                                                       Date: 7/9/20

 

 

Recommendation:

 

That the School Board authorize payment of certain bills/payrolls prior to official board action, and approve the payment of regular bills.  Please approve the appropriation request for August 2020 as well.

­­­­­­­­­­ _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

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.  The appropriation request for August 2020 also needs to be approved.
