The district's second interim budget is about $25 million. Three percent of that amounts to approximately $750,000. On top of that, the district needs to establish a minimum fund balance for planned and unplanned financial challenges. For instance, a new boiler system is needed and will cost the district about $2 million. The district's projected end-of-year reserve is $8.7 million, more than 10 times greater than the state requires. Bales reported the statewide average reserve level for unified districts is 15.44 percent. After much discussion by the board, it agreed to a minimum fund balance of 17.5 percent, with a minimum floor of $3 million. The board asked the superintendent to revise the resolution and bring it to the May meeting for review and approval. The next scheduled board meeting will be held May 2, at 5 p.m. at Chester High School.

SUPES, from page 1A to help with the improvements for the Lake Almanor Recreation Center commercial kitchen. "Yippee!" said Supervisor Sherrie Thrall, who has been working to see this project completed. The center is also benefiting from an estimated $50,000 worth of commercial kitchen equipment donated by the county health department to the recreation center. The equipment became available when the Greenville nutrition site kitchen closed. Thrall said that the center had been designed with the intention of someday housing a commercial kitchen so it would require ,. the4eavyuipment, v : minimal construction. She said a community organization was also working on a grant to help with recreation center costs. Thrall hoped there would be enough left over to pave an area in front of the center. Thrall also thanked the new facilities director, Dony Sawchuk, for working with CalFire personnel to move It's my first anniversary at Patti's Thunder iiv- -0011 U 'irst, if you enjoyed a meal at the cafe duringthe last 10 months, it's only U F because of our fire chief, Robbie Cassou, who single-handedly put out our kitchen fire.
