WALSENBURG-The special board meeting held on Tuesday was swift and to the point. The main purpose of the meeting was to formally hire Dawn Olson. The board is awaiting a final contract for her that will be drawn up by the district′s lawyers.
The board approved two resolutions to do with the 2010-2011 budget and carried out routine business. The most lively discussion concerned various items in the accounts payable. Questions were asked concerning miscellaneous items that were unclear as well as equipment bills for copiers, cell phones and lawyer fees. The board asked for clarification at the next meeting on several of these items. The next board meeting will be on July 13th and the major topic will be school uniforms.
