Our budget situation is a little different this year than in years past. We were late getting an initial budget approved. There are a number of different reasons this occurred. We had different competing priorities and the budget got pushed down the list. And that’s completely my fault for not making the budget a higher priority and getting it completed on time.
That left us with initial budget approval in early August rather than prior to June 30th. Even after that there were a number of small adjustments that needed to be made. And one large glaring mistake that needed to be fixed. We had a typo in the budget that made it through twelve versions of review. In my defense I can only say that the cell was red so of course it had to be negative! And that’s one more mistake I can add to my long and growing list of Mistakes I’ll Never Make Again.
Last week we passed a revised budget (version 17) with this corrected. This is the version we’re cleaning up and posting to the web site this week or next.
