SCHOOL FUNDS: WCCS approves initial 2014 budget

September 18, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — After a month of review, Whitley County Consolidated Schools’ Board of Trustees approved the 2014 budget at Monday night’s meeting.

WCCS held a public hearing at its last work session, Sept. 3, to allow the public to voice their opinions on the budget.

After no disputes from the public, WCCS Business Manager Tony Zickgraf recommended the board move forward with the budget — it was approved by unanimous vote.

The budget isn’t final, though, as the district doesn’t know exactly the amount of funds it will receive for the 2014 year.
