Youth Center continues budget talks

first_img Share By DINA ARÉVALOPort Isabel-South Padre [email protected] Laguna Madre Youth Center (LMYC) Board of Directors is continuing to make strides to become better organized, become financially solvent and increase staffing.To that end, the Board approved a financial and a governance policy. The Center also used funds from a grant to hire two staff members, and welcomed a new board member in Michael Reams.However, though the Board held a lengthy discussion about a proposed budget and other financial items during its meeting Monday evening, it chose to table those discussions.Executive Director Margie Jacobs presented a tentative 2018 budget of $294,573, which she said she based on expenditures and revenues from the previous year. “I’ve been kind of revising it as we go, but that’s kind of a general idea of what we need, of the expenditures that we have,” Jacobs said.There were two items of particular concern within the budget: the first, the LMYC’s outstanding debt to the City of Port Isabel, and the second, an outstanding balance for the LMYC’s participation in a pension fund.Want the whole story?
