Treasurer’s Report: Josh Mueller

  • Zelle related payments are roughly 75% of all reimbursements.  Most have been impressed with speed of payment
  • Starting 2018/2019 taxes this week with our tax partner, LEWIS, KISCH & ASSOCIATES, LTD.  Nothing needed from the board, just letting everyone know
  • Teacher allocation payments have slowed – Only 10 of 44 have requested and received reimbursement
  • Projected ending cash balance is $29,000, up about $5,000 to budget primarily driven by lower Fun Run Admin expenses and higher Fun Run Revenue
  • Current cash balance is $37,000.  This is higher than forecast of $29,000 because of unpaid teacher allocation amounts
