Lanesboro school board hears audit report


Mon, Dec 1st, 2014
Posted in Lanesboro Education

Pam Ristau, CPA, presented the Lanesboro School Board with the audit report at their meeting on November 20.

Ristau found no major financial issues when doing the report, and said the district is still going strong.

There were some problems with the Community Education fund, however, as it has been operating with a negative balance. Ristau recommended they transfer $96,000 from the general fund to decrease the negative balance. The balance is still at a negative $105,000 after the transfer. Ristau said they transferred $147,000 to the Community Ed. fund the year before, so there has been some improvement.

“You’re strong enough to do a transfer from the general fund,” said Ristau. “Some places are struggling to stay open.”

Superintendent Jeff Boggs noted they may lose some money with the daycare, but it keeps enrollment where it is. “The bottom line is enrollment would look a lot different if we didn’t have it,” said Boggs.

Ristau said the food service fund is still strong. The expenditures have increased some with menu changes, but there is still $44,000 in the fund. Ristau said most districts are in the negative or just break even with their food service.

The district is doing well paying off debts. They are down to one bond of $545,000, which will be paid off in 2019. Long-term debt, which includes compensated absences, PTO, and retirement benefits, is at $1.1 million. There is currently $2.8 million in the general fund.

The board approved the transfer of funds and the audit report.
