Bristol Elementary seeks voter input on budget

BRISTOL — The Bristol Elementary School board has taken steps to get feedback for a new spending proposal, laid out a timeline of public forums and set a date by which it hopes to warn a new budget vote.
Board members decided at their Monday evening meeting that they will host a community forum on Monday, March 23, at 7 p.m. in the BES cafeteria, during which Bristol residents will split into small groups and answer questions posed by the board.
The board also has created an online survey to solicit feedback from voters about how to draft a new budget. The survey will be live online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/BES2016 from March 24 to March 27.
On March 30, the board will convene again to evaluate all the information gathered from the survey and forum, and use it to give administrators — such as Principal Sandy Jump and Superintendent David Adams — priorities for creating a new budget proposal.
Board member Krista Siringo said the board hopes to warn a new budget proposal at a meeting on April 6 at 5:30 p.m. in the school library. The warning would be followed by an April 13 budget information session and an April 14 revote.
Board chair Steve Barsalou did not respond to a request for comment.
