The C-M board approved their upcoming spending plan on Monday evening. From Karen Mansfield of the O-R:
Canon-McMillan School Board on Monday adopted a $49.96 million general fund budget for the 2006-07 school year that requires a 3-mill tax increase.
Directors voted unanimously to adopt the spending plan. The district's real estate tax will be 92 mills and will cost residents on average an additional $52.39 in property taxes next year.
Revenue from the tax increase will be used to offset increased utilities and operational costs, handle rapid growth in the district and fund an extensive technology program that includes the purchase of new computers in the district's seven elementary schools and the addition of a computer lab at the high school.
