NEW LONDON — At Monday’s meeting the New London board of education adopted the second resolution to put a 2.9-mill, five-year permanent improvement levy on the November ballot.

After the March meeting the measure went to the county auditor’s office to be certified, and he informed the board it will bring in $339,000 a year. The money is needed for repairs of the roof and Wildcat Drive, replacement busses, security upgrades and other improvements.

Superintendent Brad Romano addressed the ongoing issue of deficits in the cafeteria’s budget and said he would probably recommend a reduction of one employee at the May meeting.

As part of the board’s regular recognition, the Super Cat students of the month were named: Kendyl Moffit in the elementary, Owen Livingston in the middle school and Weston Eibel and Logan Villa in the high school.

In other business, the board approved both the first reading of a group of policy changes and the student handbooks for the next school year and accepted several donations. Donations for the drama department were approved, as well as timpani and chimes valued at $12,423 for the music department from the Music Boosters Club and a storage barn valued at $3,500 for the baseball/softball programs from the Athletic Boosters Club.
