OTTOVILLE — Ottoville Local Schools Treasurer Bob Weber shared his good news with the school board Wednesday, noting the district will receive $9,423.55 in casino revenues from the Ohio Department of Taxation.
Weber said of the $37,953,632 in casino revenues, 34 percent went to schools.

“I received the notification this afternoon,” Weber said Wednesday. “When we will receive the actual money? I don’t know.”
School board members performed annual duties that fall at the beginning of the year including electing Sue Bendele as president and Barb Hoersten as vice president. Meetings will remain at 7:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month and will be held in the board of education conference room in the elementary school with the exception of the July meeting, which will be held in Cloverdale at St. Barbara’s Parish.

Board member Kim Wannemacher will serve as the board’s internal audit representative and Wannemacher and Kevin Landin will serve as Finance Committee members along with the superintendent and treasurer.

Board member Craig Byrne is the board’s education liaison and will attend the Ohio School Boards Association Capital Conference with Landin as an alternate. Wannemacher will serve as the board’s student achievement liaison.

The board also accepted $832.10 in the Box Tops for Education reimbursement program.

Weber also presented various financial reports on the district’s first six months of the 2012-13 school year as compared to past years. He reported the building costs 85 cents per square inch to operate.

Members of Ottoville’s senior class presented each board member with a certificate acknowledging School Board Recognition Month and thanked each member for their time and effort.

The next meeting is tentatively scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20. Girls basketball playoffs may change the meeting date.
