Sturgeon Bay School Board To Hold Budget Hearing

Residents of the Sturgeon Bay School District will have the chance to comment on the 2012-2013 budget during a public hearing at Wednesday night's school board meeting. 

District Superintendent Joe Stutting says the tax burden for district residents will be going up -- around $76 for the owner of a $100,000 home -- but that's because of the loss of state aid.

According to figures released Monday by the Department of Public Instruction, Sturgeon Bay's state aid is getting reduced by 9.26 percent -- from $3,761,934 to $3,413,392 -- a difference of $348,542.

In fact, Stutting says during his seven years as superintendent Sturgeon Bay has gone from a district that receives more than 40 percent state aid to one that's now in the "mid 20s."

Stutting says the board made the decision not to tax to its authority. He says they could have taxed up to $1.9 million but instead chose $1.5 million.

"In that case it's a nice budget where you have more revenue than you need," says Stutting. "Because we never predicted Act 10 was going to happen and that our employees would be picking up that share that the district did not have to pick up."

In other action, newly-appointed board member Jacob Schulz will take the oath of office.

Wednesday's meeting is at 7 p.m. in the Sturgeon Bay High School Library.
