The annual board realignment, a first interim budget report, and a public hearing on installing cost-saving solar panels districtwide are on the agenda when Dixon Unified officials convene tonight.
The five-member board will reshuffle itself, electing a president, vice president and clerk. Their terms of office will be in effect through December 2016. Caitlin O’Halloran, an education activist and former Reporter columnist, is the current president.
Adrian Vargas, the district’s chief financial officer, will present the 2015-16 first interim budget report, which shows increases over last year’s budget.
He will tell trustees that revenues are projected to be $32.3 million, expenses nearly $31 million, the bulk of it salaries and benefits, including a 4 percent salary schedule increase. Ending cash balance is expected to be $2.8 million.
