NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the School Board of the School District of Phillips, Price County, Wisconsin, that the final school district budget shall include an amount not to exceed $650,000 in excess of the revenue limits imposed under §121.91, Wis. Stats., each year for a period of five years on a non-recurring basis, beginning with the 2013-2014 school year and ending with the 2017-2018 school year for the purpose of continuing to provide instructional programs and for ongoing operational expenses despite state-related budgetary reductions while at the same time recognizing the need to engage in responsible fiscal management of the School District's resources in recognition of the desire to minimize property tax impacts.[1]
