Declining enrolment impacts budget

The Rainy River District School Board last night passed a balanced budget of $48,388,008 for the 2011-12 school year.

“This is a budget that is based on enrolment—it drives everything we do as far as services that we provide and funding that comes in,” Superintendent of Business Laura Mills said in a presentation at the special board meeting.

Strategic planning session set to go

Fort Frances town council and administration will map out a strategic plan covering the remainder of its term during a session tomorrow at Sunny Cove Camp.

Slated to run from 9 a.m.-9 p.m., they will meet to discuss issues and set objectives.

Some of this discussion will be based on input provided by local stakeholders, which the town had put out a call for last month.
