Nashua city, schools closer to budget compromise
She asked the board to get closer to a 3 percent increase which would require a $560,000 cut from the proposed budget.
“I would like to think that some of you are relieved that I am here asking for $560,000, not $1.6 million,” she said.
For 2014, the school district is expected to bring in more than $40 million in revenue from different sources such as grants, state and federal aid and fees for transportation, parking and out-of-district tuition. Most of the money is spent covering the services provided but this year, there is a more than an $800,000 revenue surplus that will go to the city.
BOE member Sandra Ziehm said she feared it would set a precedent, and the school district would lose that income to support those programs.
