While the average length of bus routes in Iowa was 27.37 miles, the Titonka average was 25.33. A n athletic budget prepared by Mr. Gaul was approved, calling for expenditures of $5,624. It is estimated that approximately $4,100 in gate receipts would go toward meeting this expense. Supt. Wilbeck presenting the budget, indicated that during the past several years, actual receipts taken in at athletic contests has been higher than projected receipts. Results of this, is that non- salaried expenses for the athletic program have been self- supporting. The Board approved the 1975 76 school calendar which calls for school to begin August 25, 1975 with a projected termination date of May 26, 1976. Considerable time was spent studying the proposed 1975-76 budget. The Board set February 10 as the budget hearing date. Secretary Gartner indicated that at present the forms for filing the budget estimates with the county auditor have not arrived and that if they were not received in ample time, it may be necessary to postpone the hearing. The Board also spent some time discussing a 2y 2 mill levy proposal presented by Supt. Wilbeck who had stated earlier in his presentation of the budget that allowable growth per student offset by a declining enrollment allowed for an inadequate amount of additional money with which to operate the school. A 2i/ 2 mill levy, if approved by the voters, would provide an additional source of Income which could be used for certain major repair costs with which ithe school will be faced. The Board will meet in special session at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, January 23 to discuss this (matter further.
