The five year financial forecast, and some personnel action were part of the docket for the Holgate School Board of Education Wednesday night. The operational budget for Holgate schools indicates expenditures have surpassed revenues, which means the carryover balance is being reduced each year. By 2018, the Holgate budget would be down to about $51,000 even with passage of renewal levies this fall.
The Holgate board approved coaches for the spring sports season on Wednesday, with Jeff McMahon tabbed for track, Christine Yenser in girls softball, and Tim Kelly was named the varsity baseball coach.
Kimberly Baker was hired as a cafeteria employee at Holgate; and Amanda Latscha was moved-up on the salary scale due to more education.
