Current Beaver Dam School Budget Slightly Outpacing Previous Budget

(Beaver Dam) Spending for the current Beaver Dam Unified School District budget is slightly outpacing last year’s numbers at this time. Director of Business Services Anne-Marie Malkovich says as of April 30, spending as a percentage of the total budget is at 66.5-percent this year compared to last year, which was at 65.7-percent. Malkovich says the increased spending is primarily attributed to maintenance needs, like higher than anticipated snow removal and salt expenses and multiple remediation projects, which was up $50-thousand dollars. She says the district will continue to monitor the budget as they approach the end of the fiscal year and recommend any adjustments as needed.
