Inflation major culprit in deficit spending at KC District

By Anna Jauhola
Kittson Central’s proposed 2022-23 budget will operate in the red.
Superintendent Bob Jaszczak presented the preliminary figures at the regular board meeting on Wednesday, June 15.
“The preliminary budget always ends up looking kind of poor,” he said. “Our budget last year was about $450,000 in the red when we budgeted. We’re not going to end up in that range this year, but I do anticipate we will deficit spend because the price of everything is going up.”
School budgets begin each year in July, so beginning next month, expenditures are estimated to be $5.4 million for 2022-23, with $5.05 million in revenues. This leaves about $430,000 the district will spend at a deficit.
