The Crosby Ironton School Board decided not to take the advice of administration at Monday night's meeting. Superintendent Jamie Skjeveland and Business Manager Bill Tollefson suggested trimming next year's budget by $1.3-Million, partly to insure a comfortable financial cushion in case of emergencies. Skjeveland said the board approved a somewhat lower figure; $750,000. The superintendent said he also told the board, "once they've approved those reductions, we're going to follow those marching orders. No, we're not going to go back and ask for more, we have other issues we need to start addressing." Some members of the board would like to consider another operating levy referendum. Chairman Bob Sandin said the board would be working on another levy. Former Chairman Mike Domin said the board has not officially discussed a levy and in his opinion has no desire to move forward on the issue.
