Johnson City Board of Education Having Tough Time Trimming Budget
Could a tax hike be in the future for Johnson City property owners? So far the city leaders have made no mention of an increase, but a school system budget is on its way back to commissioners with a $1.1 million deficit. Commissioners asked the school board to cut their budget by around three million dollars, something board members say was virtually impossible. Education leaders were able to cut $1.7 million from their budget by cutting funding for a social worker and support staff, numerous teaching positions, new math and science text books and some new computers. Johnson City School Board members say if they are forced to cut any more it might mean eliminating some sporting and band programs. Commissioners are expected to discuss the new school budget at a meeting on Friday.
