Two dozen people attended the annual meeting of the Oconto Falls School District on Aug. 19.

Superintendent Dave Polashek reviewed the budget, which included a less than 1 percent increase in expenditures.

The district will be increasing the p property tax levy approximately $290,000, to make up most of the reduction of $328,000 in state aid, the district said in a news release.

The overall levy is rising 3.5 percent compared to the previous year. The actual tax rate won't be set until property values are available in October.

District resident Neva Lemorande told the board she was concerned about the state's support for public schools in Wisconsin. She noted that public schools take all children and must provide them best education possible because they are our future.

Board member Ken Harter encouraged parents to contact their elected officials to express their concern about the lack of support for public schools.

Polashek said the District has again budget $20,000 to improve outdoor facilities. Also, the food service fund finished in the black by about $21,000 this past year, and was projected to be $30,000 in the black for the coming year.
