St. J School Board Meets

st. j schoolboardST. JOHNSBURY - The St. Johnsbury school board met last night, with the main topic focusing around the school budget that is proposed for this year. Multiple residents were present at the meeting to have their voices heard on topics that seemed to be of issue to them.

When the budget was brought up, there were numerous mixed feelings about the proposal. The new budget plan calls for a point five percent increase in comparison to last years budget, but will not affect St. Johnsbury taxpayers to pay an increase in taxes.
Some residents however, feel that despite there not being a change in tax payments, they were not "in the loop" on deciding the new budget as they would have liked to have been.
