ELGIN - Budget and staffing issues dominated the recent Elgin Public Schools Board of Education meeting last week.

Convening at 6 p.m. on Thursday the ninth, the full board was present for the meeting, which lasted just over a half hour and didn’t reveal much in the way of new business. Superintendent Nate Meraz led the meeting, which mostly featured a rundown of the budget.

Notable budget items included some change orders for maintenance items.


“It’s that time of year where we’re going to be doing bus inspections,” Nate said, before explaining where some of the pricier change orders were coming from, including a $28,000 bus maintenance bill, which is for service and repairs on the whole fleet.

“We’ve had a couple cracked floors and things that we’ll have to replace totally, and they’re out of warranty,” he said.
