The district also is attempt- ing to increase its contingency fund ti> with this year's budget. Last year's budget had a contingency of S100.000 and Wiedersberg said a larger contingency will be needed as the budget in- creases in ti4 Percent Higher The budget also includes more for supplies and textbooks for the year. The increase of 20 percent is need- ed to rover the high bids for paper and other supplies being received by the district. Currie said paper bids are about 64 percent higher than a year ago. In staff matters, the budget includes 14 fewer elementary teachers this year than last, and six fewer teachers at the junior and senior high level. In presenting the budget, Wiedersberg said the 1973-74 budget had an unspent bal- ance of Of that amount. S103.000 was receipts from ihe food service depart- ment which Wiedersberg rec- ommended be restricted for use in that area. Another was summer school carry-over funds, re- sulting in a gross unspent bal- ance of or 3.668 of that year's budget. Salary Hikes Currie said any unspent bal- ance in the 1974-75 budget will have to be saved in order to provide a salary increase for teachers during the 1975-76 year. About million will be needed to give the staff a 10 percent raise. Currie said. Yet the 1975-76 budget is expected to increase only about million over the 1974-75 level, he said. In addition lo the general fund, the budget also includes a s c h o o 1 h o u s e fund of Of that amount, will be raised by a local property tax of 10.238 mills. The remainder consists of cash reserves. About will be raised by a 6.738 levy to pay for bonds and interest. The 2.5 mill levy for schoolhouses will raise and the one mill levy for school sites will raise 5300.000. ___________________________I i dismissed .Monday in magis- trate's court because he suc- Drunk Driving Cases iccssfully completed a one-year Two men appeared in magis- probationary period, trait's court and pli-d guilty to wa-" thargod with haur.g charges of drunk driving. marijuana in his possc.-sion James Schiller, no address. 1973. pled sanity ami uas a month suspended jail sentence.
