After a recent period of uncertainty regarding the state budget, the Pulaski County Board of Supervisors has decided to move forward with a draft of the proposed budget for 2014-2015.
According to Massie District Supervisor Andy McCready, part of the budget will provide a level of capital maintenance funding to Pulaski County Public Schools. Renovations for certain buildings have been a hot topic over the past year, and the looming possibility of an increased tax rate to cover those expenses has kept Pulaski County residents on their toes.
McCready said the school funding for the upcoming budget will be accomplished without a tax increase. In the proposed budget, the Board of Supervisors has increased the operation funding for schools next year by $269,000, which will cover insurance costs over the coming year.
