Expenses of regional office - Budget.
When 2 or more regions have been consolidated into a single educational
service region, the costs of secretarial service, office space and other
expenses necessarily incurred in the operation of the office of the regional
superintendent shall be allocated to and
borne by the counties comprising the region in the proportion that the
equalized and assessed value of the taxable property in the county bears to
the total equalized and assessed value of all taxable property in the
region. For the purposes of calculating equalized assessed valuation
of taxable property under this Section for any tax year beginning January
1, 1981 or thereafter, the equalized assessed valuation for a county shall
be determined by adding to the real property equalized assessed valuation
for the county an amount computed by dividing the amount of money received
by the county under the provisions of "An Act in relation to the abolition
of ad valorem personal property tax and the replacement of revenues lost
thereby, and amending and repealing certain Acts and parts of Acts in connection
therewith", certified August 14, 1979, as amended, by the total tax rate
for the county.
By October 1 annually, the regional superintendent shall prepare a
budget, setting out the anticipated income for his educational service
region and a statement of the costs of secretarial services, office space
and other expenses to be incurred in the operation of his office, and shall
submit that budget to the county board of each of the counties in his
region for approval. No such costs or expenses may be incurred except
pursuant to that budget as approved by each of the county boards concerned.
The budget may be amended, modified or supplemented upon the vote of a 2/3
majority of each of those county boards.
