C-I BOARD CUTS $750,000

The Crosby Ironton School Board official trimmed its budget for next year by $750,000 at this week's meeting. Superintendent Jamie Skjvelund and Business Manager Bill Tollefson had suggested cutting more, at least $1-Million and maybe even $1.3-Million in order for the board to re-institute an adequate 'rainy day' fund balance in case of emergencies, but the board decided the lower amount was all they wanted to trim. Skjvelund said the lower amount will have to work and that the cuts came up to the board's expectations. Skjvelund added working in a district that's going through hard times would seem a bit depressing to some on the outside. Superintendent Skjvelund said that's hardly the case in Crosby-Ironton because people in the community are stepping forward, every day, and asking "how can I help?" The Crosby Ironton School Board removed the district from statutory operating debt in the recent past with a positive fund balance.
