Rochelle Elementary board meeting

In a 4-2 vote last night, the Rochelle Elementary board approved a 1-year tax abatement at 50 percent for the "Fairways" golf course and "The Beacon on the Green" restaurant. The district was the final taxing body to approve the proposal.

Board members Bob Burke and Shirley Reif voted against the motion.

School officials approved pay raises for the administrators in the district which will range from 2.5 percent to 5.3 percent. Non-certified employees will also be paid 40 cents more per hour, the same increase as a year ago.

The district has decided to go out for bids for the sale of Lincoln Grade School on South Main Street. They hope to sell the building in the near future.

Tony Doyle will be the new principal at Lincoln School. He had been the  principal at Tilton School.

The district's Treasurer will remain Mary Jo Moreland while the teacher's computer buy plan will continue for a 16th year.
