Iowa City School Board tables action on superintendent limitations


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa City School Board tabled discussion on a change in superintendent limitations Tuesday night.

The discussion comes after the Feb. 5 approval of a new revenue-purpose statement for the district. A provision in the statement limits the district’s borrowing to $100 million through 2029 against future sales taxes. Officials would use funds to renovate current facilities and build new elementary schools.

But officials are now discussing a potential conflict between a part of the revenue statement and the superintendent’s limitations.

School Board members want to look at various plans for the district before moving forward with discussion on changing the limitations.

“I say we should hold off on this discussion, but have this discussion once we have date and an overall plan,” board member Patti Fields said. “This can be changed, but we shouldn’t be spending money without a plan.”
