Local Officials Working Together

On September 30, officials from the Vandalia-Butler City School District, Butler Township and the City of Vandalia met to discuss how the increase in government intrusion and resulting loss of local control are impacting not just their schools but their entire community.  “We’ve all been hit hard by reductions in local funding from the state,” reported Vandalia-Butler Schools Superintendent Brad Neavin.  He added that:  “As a result of our recent meeting, the city manager, township administrator and I will be working together to create a comprehensive list of unfunded state mandates that are impacting our entire community.”  The plan then is for city, township and school district officials to hold a series of coffee discussions regarding these unfunded mandates with citizens throughout the community.
