School Board OKs budget, looks at impact of stimulus funds

Email

WILLMAR -- The Willmar School Board has approved a $41 million operating budget for the 2009-10 school year.

The board voted unanimously Monday to approve the budget. It reflects $2.7 million in budget cuts the board approved in the spring, including staff cuts and fee increases.

The budget also reflects changes in revenue sources. A bit less money is coming from state government. More is coming from local taxpayers, thanks to an operating levy they approved last fall.
