District 150 drafts plan to better monitor spending, travel

Aug 10, 2015

The Peoria Public School board is drafting a policy that would change how purchases and employee travel are approved. The move comes as some board members express concern over recent trips to out-of-state conferences.

The policy would require varying levels of consent for purchases, depending on the size of the expenditure being written off. Board member Rick Cloyd calls the draft “a cleanup” of how the district’s purchases are currently reviewed and carried out.

The Woodford County Board chairman had some tough words for Tazewell County during Thursday’s commission meeting.
