REVENUE SOURCES: Mr. Stuart presented a projected <br />budgettotl9154(Attachment 2) which also included information on two <br />possible sources of additional revenue. <br /> <br />Although the County has not previously charged the school districts for <br />serv~ces in the sC::'1001s, it is legal to do so, and such charges are made <br />in many Qther counties. The Port Townsend School District Superintendant <br />has indicated, in casual conversation, a willingness to pay for services, <br />although no specific discussion followed. Health Department staff feel <br />that it will be necessary to tap this source of income and that, if this <br />is to b& done, the school districts should be notified as soon as possible, <br />since their fiscal year begins in October and budgets are prepared well <br />ahead of that. If they are notified now, payment to the Health Department <br />could be included in the 1984-85 budgets, with the first payment due by <br />December 31, 1984. <br />
