Cloutier calculations expose waste
Budget Committee chairman estimates school budget should be $2M lower

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.  Well, so can a video clip.  

Last year, the school department operated smoothly at a cost of $30.8 million. During the Budget Committee meeting of December 16, 2008, committee chairman Dan Cloutier calculated that the school board’s level budget next year, adjusted for contractual obligations and other cost increases, should be no more than $32.6 million. But the school board came in looking for approval for nearly $2 million more than that. As Cloutier asked during the meeting, “What has changed over the year that just ended…that is going to cost that amount of money?”
