Ed Board Committee to Study Budget Blunder

By James Lomuscio

Westport’s Board of Education tonight voted unanimously to establish a Health Insurance Fund Review Committee to determine the cause of a nearly $2 million current budget shortfall and to develop safeguards so it does not happen again. Image

The insurance shortfall in the school system’s current $104 million budget, attributed to former Assistant Superintendent of Business Nancy Harris and discovered over the past several months by her replacement Elio Longo, has been a major blow to the school board with ramifications affecting next year’s budget.

Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon noted that his proposed 2014-15 operating budget to be presented to the school board on Friday has a 6.5 percent increase due to the blunder instead of what should have been a 4.3 percent jump.

The review committee will made up of three school board members, Paul Block, Karen Kleine, and Brett Aronow, who will serve as chairwoman, as well as Longo and a citizen volunteer to be chosen by Elaine Whitney, school board chairwoman.
