The proposed 2019-20 executive budget for Cayuga-Onondaga BOCES is set to be higher than the current year’s plan.
Doug Tomandl, assistant superintendent for management, regional services and finance for BOCES led an explanation of the executive budget at a board of education meeting Thursday. The executive budget includes the superintendent’s office, the administrative and business offices and BOCES retiree health insurance.
The total proposed 2019-20 executive budget is set at $2,018,477.63, with a $84,199.63, or 4.37 percent, jump from the current year’s adopted budget. It was noted that 2.53 percent of that increase is set to be from health insurance obligations.
Tomandl said after the meeting that the health insurance is set to be a big cost driver, with 11 anticipated new retirees factored into health insurance costs. He said there aren’t other major cost drivers for the administrative budget. He noted there are no anticipated staff changes.
“It’s actually anticipated to be a very steady year,” Tomandl said.
