BANGOR - The Bangor school committee had its first meeting tonight regarding the 2014 fiscal year budget.
This first reading of the proposed budget finds itself in a unique situation. There are many unknowns at this time like revenue, expenditure estimates, and the state budget, but Bangor's superintendent says there are many positive aspects to see right now with the proposed plan.
"This budget is about $740,000 less than the 2010 budget to give you an idea. It is just a 2.26% increase over the adoptive budget this year. I think the most important thing is that it maintains the quality of the Bangor school department, and that core experience that we've defined for students," Superintendent Dr. Betsy Webb says.
The second reading of the proposed budget will take place on April 3rd where the school committee will decide its fate.
