CAB Making Progress in Cutting Food Service Debt
July 2, 2008 - According to reports presented at the June 17 meeting of the Charles A. Beard School Board, CAB has been making significant strides toward reducing debt in its food service program and collecting delinquent textbook rental fees.
Andrea Sharp, CAB's food services director, gave a brief presentation at the board meeting. She said CAB's cafeteria program was nearly $68,000 in the red in June 2007, but that the deficit had been reduced about $33,500 by this June. Sharp attributed the savings to increased sales of lunches (up 9,171) and breakfasts (up 748), and to reductions in the hours of cafeteria workers.
In light of increased fuel and food costs, Sharp said CAB would need to consider raising meal and milk prices if reduction of the food service debt is to continue. The board approved 5-cent increases to $1.90 and $2.15, respectively, for elementary and high school lunches, and a 10-cent increase to $2.10 for lunch at Knightstown Intermediate School. Five-cent increases were also approved for breakfast ($1.40), milk (45 cents) and adult lunches ($2.90).
The board was also updated on CAB's efforts to collect delinquent textbook rental fees. According to a handout CAB Business Manager David Bundy prepared for board members, the $73,040.12 in unpaid fees that was owed as of January 1 is now less than $36,000.
More than $8,100 of delinquent text book fees were collected as the result of 45 small claims cases CAB has filed. Bundy's handout said 28 of those sued have paid what was owed, and that six of the remaining 17 have made arrangements to pay. The other 11 have either had their wages garnished or are facing contempt hearings for nonpayment.
