2 How we created the budget Budget Creation In October the Business Administrator sends a timeline to the staff advising them when the budget requests are due. The Superintendent and Business Administrator prioritize requests and remove those not educationally or fiscally responsible. The individual requests account for less than 10% of the budget. The remaining 90% consists of fixed costs, such as salaries, utilities, insurance, lease payments, etc. The Superintendent and Business Administrator submit a preliminary budget to the Board by the first Board Meeting in January. Rockaway Borough Budget - First Edition The First Edition of the budget was going to include a 3% tax increase. After all numbers were complied the budget was more than $818,000 over the 3% tax increase goal. Superintendent and Business Administrator make preliminary deductions. Budget presented to the Board in January
