Saugus School Board to approve budget revisions
By Christina Cox
Monday, November 14th, 2016

The Saugus Union School District Governing Board will approve seven budget revisions in areas of the district’s unique funds during its regular meeting Wednesday.

These fund changes are due to district expenses, new grants, bond leasing, inter-fund transfers and payments.

For the district’s General Fund, changes include updates to the fund’s restricted and unrestricted funds which reflect changes in income and expenditures.

The unrestricted ending fund balance experienced a net decrease of $346,062, bring the ending fund balance to $8,003,904, and the restricted fund experienced a net decrease of $314,754, bringing the ending fund balance to $2,494,131.

Fund 12.0, the Child Development Fund, experienced an increase in balance due to $32,021 in block grant revenue while another Child Development Fund, Fund 63.0, saw a decrease in balance by $40,719 due to a revision of custodial charges.

The district’s Building Fund leased $466,500 in revenue bond proceeds for projects, decreasing the end fund balance to $1,614,145.

For Measure EE funds, the district allocated $252,900 for site specific master plan projects, bringing the balance down to $152,997.

The Debt Service Fund also saw changes with inter-fund transfers and annual debt service payments, resulting in an ending fund balance of $12,315,639.

Funds within the Capital Facilities Fund were reallocated for salary and benefits, but had no financial impact.
