What is the PUSD Budget Advisory Committee up to?
Original post made by Dark Corners of Town, Country Fair, on Oct 25, 2009
In the minutes of the PUSD Board of Trustees meeting for Sep. 22 it was stated that "The BAC is meeting often and looking for a generating revenue component."
Looking at the Budget Advisory Committee webpage (Web Link), the members of the BAC are not listed, there are no agendas posted, and there are no handouts for the most recent listed meeting of September 30, 2009, and there is no place to post minutes of their work.
Who is on the BAC, what are they 'working on', and why is this not transparent to the community? Is this information anywhere?
At the post-ParcelTax1 defeat PUSD Board meeting, Trustee Hintzke (primarily) and other trustees declared that the community needs to be better educated.
If the BAC is 'working hard' and there are no public documents of their existence/results, what gives? Where is Trustee Hintzke's community education program?
By the way, why won't PUSD post .pdf files that are text searchable? I'm using Adobe Reader 9. Does anyone know of tools/conversions to work with their files?
