As we head into the new calendar year, a Logan County school district is anticipating some additional revenue sources being added to their bottom line.
The Hilltopper windfarm project is close to completion, including the second phase Whitney Hill, and Superintendent of Mt. Pulaski Schools, Fred Lamkey, says he and his administrative team are looking forward to having more revenue to work with.
How much revenue will that project bring in? Lamkey indicates it will be hard to predict and so they will await the tax bill coming out in the spring.
Mt. Pulaski is adding on to their main campus and Lamkey says some good news is starting to trickle from Springfield regarding capital funds. He indicates this is an extension of the capital project Governor JB Pritzker is taking on.
Lamkey says if around $800,000 comes in from the State to make good on the addition from 2004, there will be no earmark for those funds so the district could use that money as they see fit. Mt. Pulaski schools could put that money towards the current project or resources within the addition once it is complete.
While it would be nice to receive that money, Lamkey says they are not counting on anything.
