BURTON SCHOOL BOARD TO DISCUSS BUDGET & SALARY INCREASE, TUESDAY

  

The Burton school board will hold a special meeting Tuesday night.

The board will discuss the 2017-18 budget and a possible staff salary increase.

Currently, the projected budget, would bring in over $300,000 more in local taxes, but would lose over $400,000 in state funding compared to last year.  Total expenditures are expected to be just under the 5 million dollar mark, about $150,000 lower than last year.

At their meeting last week, the board decided to keep the current tax rate of $1.17 per $100 valuation.  That proposed tax rate will be voted on after a public hearing next Monday.

Tuesday’s meeting will be held in the administration offices at 701 N. Railroad St. at 5 p.m.
