In September of 2011, the Manatee County School Board voted on the budget for 2011-12 and passed it 3 to 2. However, this budget had some significant errors. Is it possible that the School Board members didn't take the time to read it before approving it?
Here are a few examples of the errors and omissions:
So far, revealed in the line item budget presentations campaigned for by board memmber Julie Aranabar, every department miscalculated social security by doubling the number.
The school district has refused to break down the operating budget separating salaries and benefits. But thumbnail calculations indicate that this "ERROR" could amount to a $5 million overstatement of expenses.
Remember, School board members are voted by the entire county. Let your voices be heard in 2012.
