GOOD AFTERNOON. IT'S 2:00 P.M.

AND I CALL TO ORDER THE SPECIAL MEETING OF THE FRISCO ISD BOARD OF TRUSTEES.

WE DO HAVE QUORUM WITH SIX MEMBERS PRESENT.

WE WILL MOVE TO OUR FIRST ACTION ITEM, WHICH IS OUR FIRST ITEM RATHER EXCUSE ME, COMMUNICATION TO AND FROM THE BOARD, INCLUDING PUBLIC COMMENT.

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY COMMUNICATION AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYONE SIGN UP FOR PUBLIC COMMENT, SO THAT WAS FAST.

WE'LL MOVE ON TO OUR FIRST ACTION ITEM 2A.

[2.A. Consider and act on 2022-2023 budget]

CONSIDER AN ACT ON THE 2022 2023 BUDGET.

MRS. SMITH. THANK YOU.

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO PRESENT TO YOU, BUT I DID SEND YOU ALL AN EMAIL JUST A LITTLE BIT AGO WITH A LINK TO THE PUBLISHED VERSION OF THE BUDGET BOOK, AND THAT WILL BE ALSO ON OUR WEBSITE PRETTY SOON.

SO I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IT'S THERE AND THEN YOU GUYS WILL GET A HARD COPY IN AUGUST.

EVERYTHING THAT'S IN IT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAW THE LAST TWO MEETINGS.

AND DO YOU? I KNOW WE HAVE TWO SEPARATE ACTION ITEMS, BUT DO YOU WANT TO COVER THE COMPENSATION PLAN AS WELL WHILE WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT AND THEN WE'LL SPLIT FOR BOTH VOTES? EVERYTHING IN THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU SAW AT THE LAST TWO MEETINGS ALSO.

SO I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NEW TO ADD.

[LAUGHTER] OK BOARD ANY QUESTIONS FOR MS. SMITH ABOUT THE BUDGET OR COMPENSATION PLAN? IF NOT, I'LL LOOK.

AGAIN THERE ARE TWO SEPARATE MOTIONS, SO WE'LL START WITH THE 2022 2023 BUDGET.

I DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, BUT I WANT TO THANK THE INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS FOR BEING AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS THAT WE HAD AFTER THE BOARD WORKSHOP.

MOVE TO APPROVE THE 22-23 BUDGET AS PRESENTED.

SECOND. MOTION BY MR. CLASSE, SECONDED BY MR. DAVIS. ALL IN FAVOR.

AYE. WHAT DID YOU DO? WHAT DID YOU SECOND? DID YOU SECOND IT ALSO? OKAY. EVERYONE SECONDED THAT.

I HAVE A FEELING I KNOW HOW THIS IS GOING TO GO.

ALL IN FAVOR.

AYE. MOTION PASSES SIX ZERO.

THANK YOU. WE'LL MOVE ON TO OUR NEXT MOTION FOR CONSIDER AND ACT ON 2022 2023 COMPENSATION PLAN.

[2.B. Consider and act on 2022-2023 compensation plan]

AGAIN, IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR IT, I WILL LOOK FOR A MOTION.

MOVE TO APPROVE THE 22-23 COMPENSATION PLAN AS PRESENTED.

MOTION BY MR. CLASSE SECONDED BY MS. GILLESPIE. ALL IN FAVOR.

AYE.

MOTION PASSES SIX ZERO.

THANK YOU.

WE'LL MOVE ON TO ACTION ITEM C CONSIDER AND ACT ON FINAL BUDGET AMENDMENT FOR 2021 2022 BUDGET.

[2.C. Consider and act on final budget amendment for 2021-2022 budget]

MS. SMITH.

OKAY. SO THIS IS THE YEAR END BUDGET AMENDMENT THAT WE DO IN JUNE OF EVERY YEAR.

I GAVE YOU GUYS A LITTLE BIT OF ADDITIONAL INFORMATION THIS YEAR THAT I DON'T NORMALLY GIVE YOU.

SO REMEMBER, AND FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT ARE NEW AND HAVEN'T DONE THIS BEFORE.

EVERY YEAR WE LOOK AT PROJECTED YEAR END EXPENDITURES AND WE KIND OF RUN AN ESTIMATION OF WHERE WE THINK EVERYTHING WILL END UP WHEN WE CLOSE OUR BOOKS.

IT TAKES US ABOUT THREE MONTHS AFTER THE END OF THE FISCAL YEAR TO ACTUALLY CLOSE EVERYTHING, DO ALL THE AUDIT ADJUSTMENTS, BOOK BACK ALL OF THE EXPENSES THAT MAYBE WERE INVOICED BUT NOT ACTUALLY RECEIVED OR THAT KIND OF THING.

SO IT TAKES US SEVERAL MONTHS AND SO WE DO AN ESTIMATION AND THEN WE GO THROUGH AND WE TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE BUDGET AVAILABLE IN EVERY FUNCTION TO GIVE US THE FLEXIBILITY TO MAKE ALL OF THOSE ADJUSTMENTS THAT WE NEED TO MAKE AS WE CLOSE THE YEAR.

WHAT THAT ENDS UP DOING, THOUGH, IS IT INFLATES OUR FINAL AMENDED BUDGET.

WE'RE GOING TO END UP HAVING A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF BUDGET LEFT OVER AT THE END OF THE YEAR, JUST BECAUSE WE WANT TO GIVE OURSELVES FLEXIBILITY THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER WHEN YOU GUYS AREN'T MEETING, IF WE NEED TO BOOK SOMETHING IN A FUNCTION WHERE THERE'S NOT BUDGET AVAILABLE.

SO THAT'S WHAT THIS FINAL BUDGET AMENDMENT DOES.

THERE'S ONE FOR THE GENERAL FUND.

THERE'S ALSO ONE FOR THE DEBT SERVICE FUND.

THE DEBT SERVICE FUND IS ACTUALLY DEBT SERVICE THAT WE EXPECT TO PAY WHEN WE DID OUR MOST RECENT TRANSACTION, JUST BECAUSE OF THE DATES OF THE FIRST INTEREST PAYMENTS COMING DUE, WE ENDED UP WE'RE GOING TO SPEND A LITTLE BIT MORE IN THIS YEAR'S BUDGET THAN WHAT WE ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR. SO THE DEBT SERVICE ONE IS ACTUAL EXPENSES THAT WILL HAPPEN.

THE GENERAL FUND AMENDMENT IS JUST SHUFFLING AROUND MONEY BETWEEN FUNCTIONS AND THEN ALSO ADDING SOME MONEY IN FUNCTIONS 71 AND 81, WHICH IS NOT NORMAL FOR THE GENERAL FUND.

THOSE AMOUNTS ARE RELATED TO A NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARD FOR LEASES.

IT'S NOT ACTUAL CASH BEING SPENT.

IT'S TRULY JUST ACCOUNTING DEBITS AND CREDITS.

IT'S YOU BOOK MONEY COMING IN AND GOING RIGHT BACK OUT.

THERE'S NO INCREASE IN CASH CHANGING HANDS.

IT'S JUST BECAUSE OF A NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARD.

SO THAT'S WHAT THOSE ARE.

BUT I WANTED TO GIVE YOU THIS SHEET THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS TO SHOW YOU WHERE WE PROJECT ACTUAL EXPENDITURES WILL END UP BY THE TIME WE CLOSE OUR BOOKS AGAIN.

[00:05:01]

IT'S JUST AN ESTIMATION.

IT'S NOT EXACT SCIENCE COMPARED TO OUR ORIGINAL ADOPTED BUDGET AND OUR FINAL AMENDED BUDGET THAT YOU GUYS ARE VOTING ON NOW, JUST SO YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THAT BIG INCREASE OR THAT BIG SURPLUS THAT WE EXPECT TO HAVE IN THE FINAL BUDGET AT THE END OF THE YEAR.

DO YOU GUYS HAVE QUESTIONS? I KNOW THIS IS KIND OF WE'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS UP UNTIL THIS MORNING, SO I KNOW YOU HAVEN'T HAD A CHANCE TO REALLY LOOK AT IT YET, BUT IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, I'LL BE HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM.

BOARD ANY QUESTIONS? IS THIS SHOWING THAT WE'RE SPENDING 3 MILLION, 300,000 MORE? OR YOU WERE SAYING THAT IT'S NOT REALLY MONEY THAT'S BEING SPENT? SO YEAH. SO THE 3 MILLION, 300,000 IS AN INCREASE, BUT IT'S PURELY FOR JUST ACCOUNTING TRANSACTIONS.

WE'RE NOT ACTUALLY SPENDING THAT CASH.

WE JUST HAVE TO BOOK AN EXPENSE ON OUR BOOKS.

OKAY, SO THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE USING FOR ANYTHING THAT COMES UP, YOU SAID.

SO THE SECOND COLUMN ON HERE WHERE IT SAYS FUND BALANCE, NEUTRAL TRANSFERS AND YOU CAN SEE WE'RE INCREASING SOME AND DECREASING OTHERS.

THAT'S THAT MOVEMENT IS TO GIVE US FLEXIBILITY WITHIN EACH FUNCTION SO THAT WE CAN BOOK THINGS AS THEY COME IN.

OKAY. SO WE'RE NOT OVERALL INCREASING THE BUDGET FOR THAT PIECE.

WE'RE MOSTLY TAKING STUFF OUT OF FUNCTION 11 AND MOVING IT TO OTHER FUNCTIONS.

THANK YOU. BOARD ANY OTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE AMENDMENTS FOR THE 2021 2022 BUDGET? IF NOT, I'LL LOOK FOR A MOTION.

MOVE TO APPROVE THE BUDGET AMENDMENTS FOR 21-22 GENERAL FUND AND DEBT SERVICE BUDGETS AS PRESENTED.

MOTION BY MR. CLASSE.

SECOND MS. GILLESPIE.

ALL IN FAVOR. AYE.
