The Finance Advisory Committee is a standing committee of the Board of Education charged with monitoring financial issues and trends facing the District and advising the Board regarding financial issues and policy, among other tasks. The Committee is advisory only, and all recommendations must be debated and voted upon by the Board itself.
The Committee is composed of five members: three voting Board members who each serve a one-year term, from which group is elected a chairperson, a non-voting community member, and the non-voting Superintendent of Schools and Assistant Superintendent for Business Services. During the Committee’s review process, it may also call upon other members of the District staff or administration or professionals from the community for input on specific policies, but these individuals have no vote. All meetings are open to the public.
For the 2015-16 school year, Finance Advisory Committee members include Board members Dave Lamb, Kelly Nowak, and Bill Wilson (Chairperson); community member Tom Anderson; and administrators Superintendent Kent Mutchler and Assistant Superintendent Donna Oberg. Finance Advisory Committee meeting agendas are typically made available the Thursday prior to a meeting on BoardBook. Packets of information for a committee meeting are typically made available to the public on the day of the meeting on BoardBook.
The Finance Advisory Committee typically meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. or as posted at Williamsburg Elementary School, 1812 Williamsburg Avenue.
