School Board Holds Certified Budget Public Hearing April 13

At its meeting on March 9, the West Des Moines Community Schools Board of Education set April 13, 2015 as the date for a public hearing on the 2015-16 certified budget. The hearing will be held at 7 p.m. in the Community Room at the Learning Resource Center, 3550 Mills Civic Parkway, in West Des Moines.

The certified budget is the published budget estimate, not the line-item budget. Expenditures are certified at the Functional Level, highest potential level, even though the line-item budget will be less than the maximum. The certified budget must not be exceeded. The primary purpose of the certified budget is to set the district’s property tax rate. Once the proposed certified budget is completed, it will be published in The Des Moines Register and provided on the district website along with the notice of the public hearing.
