A $49 million preliminary budget for the upcoming 2012-13 school year that calls for a 0.74 percent levy increase got the go-ahead from the Greenfield School Board on Monday for presentation to residents at the Sept. 10 annual meeting.
The proposed levy is more than $25 million.
Although the proposed budget contains money to continue the recreation offerings the district has been trying, there is some feeling on the School Board that those programs should be dropped. They didn't turn out to be the money-makers that school officials had hoped they would be. In fact, they are costing money for taxpayers, said School Board member Cathy Walsh.
The board will talk more about keeping those recreation programs. Many of them duplicate programs the city already offers through the Greenfield recreation department.
