A south-central Kansas school district will have $120,000 less to spend because of a mix-up with the county officials who collect tax dollars.
The Hutchinson News reports that the Haven school district raised the capital outlay mill levy from six mills to eight mills.
Reno County officials say they never received a copy of the resolution authorizing the two-mill increase.
Superintendent Patrick Call says the resolution was sent twice, and records show the district's budget was received. That budget shows a levee increase had been authorized.
But County Clerk Shari Gagnebin says the office doesn't read through entire budgets.
Call says the board will discuss the issue when it meets again Jan. 14. He says the shortfall likely would delay the purchase of technology supplies.
