Greene County Supervisors Slated to Vote on Budget
May 8, 2012 05:17 PM
There are strong words coming from one Greene County School Board member Tuesday night who says the Greene County Board of Supervisors hasn't a clue what's happening inside the school system.
With a $1 million gap, the school board says it could close the career and technical education center, and stop school bus transportation, and athletics. Teachers could also face salary reductions and furloughs. The county has $16 million in a reserve fund but supervisors are unwilling to use it.
Michelle Flynn with the Greene County School Board said, "To the best of my knowledge none of them have visited our schools so I am a little confused, disappointed and I have to be honest, I'm at a loss. I have no idea how we would cut a million dollars more."
The board meeting starts at the county administration building at 7:30 p.m., but the budget issue will be taken up at the William Monroe High School Performing Arts Center at around 8:30 p.m..
Students are planning to rally ahead of the meeting. The board of supervisors is slated to vote on the budget Tuesday night. One supervisor wants to fully support the school system, three want to use some reserve money, and one member doesn't want to use any of it.
