        WEST CHESTER TWP. — Alan Hutchinson, treasurer of Lakota Schools, will get his first raise since he was hired two years ago.

        The Lakota Board of Education this week gave Mr. Hutchinson a 3.5 percent salary increase retroactive to Jan. 1, 2000. Mr. Hutchinson's salary will increase from $89,500 to $92,632.

        “We are pleased with Mr. Hutchinson's financial leadership,” said Sandy Wheatley, president of the school board. “His efforts and innovations have saved taxpayers thousands of dollars.”

        Mrs. Wheatley said the board, on Mr. Hutchinson's advice, delayed adjusting his salary until last month's passage of a 6.74-mill combination levy that included a 4.9-mill levy that will provide the district with $8.3 million more a year for operations. The levy had failed in March and in May the board cut spending by $2 million.

        The Association of School Business Officials International gave the district an award for its 1999 financial report, prepared by Mr. Hutchinson and his staff.
