LGSD 2014-15 budget recommended
The La Grande School District's proposed 2014-15 budget received a big thumbs up from its budget committee Wednesday night.
The budget committee voted unanimously to recommend that the school board adopt the district's proposed 2014-15 general fund budget of $19.237 million, one up almost $1.8 million over the present year's budget. The proposed increase reflects a projected increase in state revenue due in part to an improving economy.
The $19.237 million spending plan, would add back many positions which the district was forced to cut in recent years due to budget shortfalls.
The La Grande School Board will vote on adoption of the proposed budget at its May 28 meeting.
