WVN #81: Correction
- Wayland Voters Network
April 12, 2005
Dear Wayland Voter,
There was an error in WVN newsletter #80 which was posted yesterday.
One of the Town handouts used in preparing that newsletter had
different FY04 figures for the school budget than does the School
Budget booklet. In fact, the budget booklet shows an increase
between FY04 and FY05 of 1.8%, not 6.6% as we previously reported.
We regret the error, and thank the School Committee member who
contacted us to point it out. We also checked the increase between
FY05 and FY06, and found that it should be 5.7%, not 5.6% as
The paragraph in question should read as follows:
For example, one might note that in FY05, the schools' operating
budget rose 1.8%, while the total public safety budget rose 1.5%.
The schools' proposed operating budget for FY06 rises another 5.7%,
while the public safety budget is nearly level, with an increase of
less than 1%.
