Routine items on tech center agenda

Woodward, Okla. — It's business as usual for the upcoming High Plains Technology Center's board meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5.

The board will convene to discuss annual matters, including a resolution calling for the annual school election on Feb 12, 2013 to elect a member to the High Plains Board of Education for Zone 1.

"We're broken down into zones throughout the county, Zone 1 is up for election, so those who live in Zone 1, which has a north boundary of Oklahoma Ave, a west boundary of 48th St., a south boundary of Hanks Trail, and an east boundary of 22nd St., can run," said Rachelle Rogers, administrative assistant for the High Plains Technology Center.

In another annual matter, the HPTC board will review their 2013 Calendar schedule of regular board meetings, including dates, times, and places.

The board will also discuss the hiring of new employees, namely part-time instructors and employees, as well as substitutes.  In addition, the board will consider hiring Mark Walser as a full-time custodian.

Wrapping things up for the meeting will be discussion of financial matters including the general fund encumbrances totaling $118,805.90, payroll encumbrances totaling $25,413.81, and building fund encumbrances in the amount of $65,000.

"General fund encumbrances are just the operation of the school from pencils to sharpeners; it's just general operation costs.  Payroll encumbrances speak for themselves.  And building fund encumbrances pays for things like building remodels for example; not that we're doing one, that's just a for instance," Rogers said.

The board will also receive their regular activity fund report and treasurer's report for October 2012.
