Milardo Reports Budget Carryover for Board of Education

John Milardo who publishes a newsletter for the Middletown Managers and Professional Association, Local 6092, AFT-CT, reports the following:

The Board of Education is carrying over almost $1.4 million into this budget year from last year. How? I don’t know?

BOE Administrators received their mileage “reimbursement” checks this week.

Based on current IRS mileage reimbursement rates, which are $.55 (cents) per mile. Here is the Board of Education mileage reimbursement breakdown.

    • Superintendent of Schools received $6,200.00. That amounts to; 11,272 miles per year, or 940 miles per month.

    • Assistant Superintendent of Schools, two (2) positions, received $4,200.00, each.

      That amounts to; 7,637 miles per year, or 637 miles per month, for each Assistant Superintendent.

    • Director of Maintenance received $3,900.00. That amounts to; 7,091 miles per year, or 591 miles per month.

    • Business Manager (new position, 3 weeks on the job) received $4,000.00. That amounts to; 7,273 miles per year, or 607 miles per month.

This is ridiculous, I would like to see BOE make public the itemized mileage reports and purpose for each trip or is that information confidential?

Business manager 3 weeks on job $4,000. That person/position is out of line. We could end up paying over $200,000 for mileage. Does anyone think that this is insane?

How man times must it be said. An independent audit of the BOE to the mayor and council available to the citizens of Middletown must be done.

It is outragous that the BOE has a such a hugh surplus when we are paying more taxes. It is time that we demand reduced budgets from the BOE.

Agreed. This is public money we're talking about. There should be documentation of how it's spent.
